I miss Lake Langano as I spent summers there with my father " Duke" who worked for Ethiopian airlines with fellow workers who also shared time at the beautiful lake. Someday I would return with my family.

U must be really Birabiro and able to capture some of the beauty of Agerie. I enjoyed it big!
Good job; that is like a message to those who fly home so that they will learn and appreciate the country side instead of jumping from one dance "bet" to the other.
Guest 13-Jun-2007 14:54

Hey! really are birabiro......places you get to and go to them pic's are so good. It's a great job that you have done. Promoting Ethio, in good kind'a way!!! you know what i mean. But there are some people who are complaining, about not putting in the real thing in our country. But my brothers and sisters, the world knows about our problems, but what they don't know is, how beautiful our country is. Birabiro has taken the first step to educate the world, so let's take the second and the third to keep the show on the road. Imagine if all of us work together with positive attitude like birabiro girl, the tourism industry will be boooming!!!! that way even the economy can get better. So haters, we and the whole world knows what's up?!!! and can't and couldn't do nothing about it. Leave that to the almighty GOD. Praise to BIRABIRO.
Keep it UP SUPER WOMAN!!!!
Guest 06-Oct-2006 18:25

Your pictures are beautiful. I was looking for Lalibela pictures and you have great ones. My intention is to create calendars for our church. I wanted to ask you if I can use your pictures. Our Church, St. Mary Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Los Angeles, distributes the calendars for free yearly. I have also been asked by Debre Selam Qidus Mikael Ethiopian Orthodox Church, Indianapolis to make them a calendar and was hoping to use the same pictures. My understanding is that they will be charging some fee for it to cover expenses for printing. My services are free. We will be glad to post the necessary credit on the Calendar.

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Yours Truly,
Fekade S. Mesfin

Guest 30-Jun-2005 23:21
Hello birabiro .... i like your website a lot ... nice pictures .. i am not an ethiopian .. but i have lived in ethiopia though as a young boy for around 4 years .. i have lived in ethiopia until Haile Selassie was killed .. so i guess till around 1975/76 or something .. like that .. we had to leave the country because of the civil war after Haile Selassie's death and because of this it was very dangerous for us to stay ... we lived in Wonji .. it is a little village close to Nazret .. i was wondering if .. you have pictures of Wonji as well .. i am curious how it looks like now ...

Keep up the good work ..... Best regards .. Jellus
Katarina 20-Jun-2005 09:23
Great webbsite! Love the pictures and I also work as a grapic designer so i really likes the graphicarts. I have not had the plessaure to go to Ethiopia yet but my boryfriend comes from Ethiopia so maybe in the near furture..... Keep up the good work .Best regards Katarina
Ivana 14-May-2005 12:00
Your effort is admirable. I am not an Ethiopian. I have been in Ethiopia in some parts (f.e. Awassa, Harar, Addis Abeba, Awash...). I would like to advise you to improve the quality of photos (some photos are blarred, made from long distance, it would be necessary tu cut only details from this). One must make many many photos, read about a technique of photografy. I also learn to make photos for years and I am at the beginning. It is the run for the long distance. It is certailny of great interest, that one can get some photos from Ethiopia at an internet website. Keep it up. Ivana
yoseph 08-May-2005 04:51
i love it. when ever i see my own people geting involved in the new technologies, man! that makes me so happy. even though we are back ward and late for technology, there are people who make us proud. who ever did this, i would like to say God bless you for the beautiful work you've done. try to up grade it every time. try to change it make it more update. but let me give you a piece of advice. don't give a biased information. i am not saying this is biased. mostly what i see from other webs is too much lies.
keep it up and God bless

Congratulations on your excellent website and photos.I enjoyed seeing again many places in Ethiopia,especially Dire Dawa ,where I lived in 1966-1968 as a United States Peace Corps teacher at the secondary school.If any of my former students or Peace Corps colleagues see this comment,I'd be glad to hear from them!
Keep up the good work.

I found this site after surfing the Internet and it brings back memories. I lived and saw all those places and love the places and the memories go with them. I’m looking forward to seeing more pictures from other areas also.
Again, it is good to see that there’s still someone out there doing a good work.

1.May I link your page to my site?
2.Can I make a use of some of the pictures?

I put my step in to your guest book like I always do when I surf the Internet.You are welcome to visit 'my website'.

I agree with the comment written by YH. Thank you brother/sister.
YH 26-May-2004 18:21
I looked at your work, and the comments you have recieved and i might add the pictures are nice and clear. How ever, i'm not impressed where the country is right now, i wish if you would uncover the true current Ethiopia so we can be able to search where did Ethiopia go wrong?. Why is our beloved country despite its fantastic heritage and history, just another dirt-poor third world country?. Why was Ethiopia unable to have the national greatness that we had in the last centurys and fail to pass it to the 20th and 21st century. I'm not criticizing your work, infact i have not even tried what you have done; it is not personal but i just want people to see the current problem deeply, the suffering of our brother and sisters, mother and fathers and the suffering of our beloved country. Lets not be blinded by what we see, instead lets listen to the suffering of our people. Is there enough books in the Univerisities and Colleges?, how about public health?, are the middle classes is able to do business?, is the government heading toward the right direction?, Why does the government supress the local and middle class business people?. Our country and people deserves more than what we see and we have the ability, reasource and knowledge to build our country if the current government is really there to build one nation instead of dividing by religion, culture and ethnicity. Lets not allow the current government to confused, disorganized, and misruled our beloved Country.

Hi Dejene,
I don't mind at all if you use the pictures for your presentation. It's very nice of you to ask first, I appreciate it!
Dejene 08-Feb-2004 00:29
It is wonderful! I found it very nice. I enjoyed looking at it and will certainly invite my fiends to see these beautiful pictures.

Do you mind if I copy some of the pictures on my computer and prepare a presentation about Ethiopia?

Thank you very much for preparing such nice photos and generously making it available on the net.

Auf wiedersehen!

Dejene, Hannover
Hiriti 09-Jan-2004 21:31
Birabiro, Betam Arif Newu! The sunset pictures were my favorites. The various birds from Awassa are amazing ... It reminded me of the instrumental songs from E.T.V. I also liked seeing Goffer and Keyo side by side although I'm not quite sure if it's a love/hate relationship. I like the humor you throw in here and there. Hope to see more of your picture collection.
eZana 08-Dec-2003 00:29

Birabiro sweety !

What such a grateful person u are ! That is really a wonderful job.It was like being physically in Addis. That is how my Ethiopia really looks like.From now on i will just run to ur crystal clear pictures whenever i get asked about my coutry by friends.I was really tired of trying to explain in words.Seeing is just believing ! Tanx a lot !

By the way do many ppl in Axum have such a beatuiful and clean kitchen ? It is a nice work of art !
Eliab 07-Dec-2003 04:58
Hi Birabiro,

You take very beautiful pictures. You have given us a positive image of our homeland, keep it up...

I really liked your pictures.
It's what i've been looking for to show my friends. Now i feel like going back home......

U should keep it up!

Hi Birabiro, thanks for the nice Ethiopian pictures. I have already linked your page on the page.
Keep up the good work.

Thank you all for the nice words!!! :-)
birabiro08-Nov-2003 16:17
Hi Terri,
I thought the trip to Bahir Dar was very much worth it! You can take a boat across lake Tana to visit the old monasteries and churches built on the various islands.
If you want to go, you can fly from Gondar to Bahir Dar -- it's only about a half-hour flight. The city of Bahir Dar is built near lake Tana so the lake is very easy to get to. To go to the Blue Nile falls, you could take the bus (about a 45-minute ride) from Bahir Dar to the little city nearest the falls. Once there, it's about an hour hike/walk to the bottom of the falls...
Terri 02-Nov-2003 18:08
Hi ! Thanks for the pics...I will go to Ethipoia to trek in the Simien Mts. for 8 days. I will fly from Addis to Gondar. Should I go to lake Tanis and the Blue Nile Falls too and how long will that take??? Thank-you.

mugu john 01-Nov-2003 10:31

melalite 06-Sep-2003 15:56
