Tourists give all clear
Those opinionated US tourists are back again. This time they want us to know that everything is OK. There is a "reliable peace" in Ethiopia, they told the state-owned ETV and ENA, not made any less reliable by the occasional random bomb blast.
US tourists speak of reliable peace in Ethiopia - Ethiopian News Agency 31 Mar
Tourists from US said there was a total discrepancy between what they had heard about Ethiopia in US and the reliable peace they actually observed.
A group comprising eight American tourists visited Ethiopia's amazing wildlife and historical sites for nine days.
The tourists pledged to publicize the serene and peaceful environment they witnessed during their stay in Ethiopia.
They told the Ethiopian Television on Thursday that media outlets in the US do not broadcast the alluring tourist sites in Ethiopia except reports about drought and the assistance needed...
Members of the group said they have taken pictures to prepare documentary that would help them publicize the country's tourist sites.
A group of tourists who have visited Ethiopia recently said the country needs to work remarkably to change its distorted image in the Western World and properly utilize and benefit from its natural and wildlife resources...
The tourists, who are mainly wildlife experts and bird watchers in profession made a pledge that they would work towards promoting what they have seen here back in their country.
Hoteliers of Ethiopia, brace yourselves for a bookings frenzy.
