Fondest memory: There are plenty of shoeshine workers in Addis Ababa, and most of them doesn't have too much customers. Some of them wanted to do shoeshine on my runningshoes, but it's not exactly the most suitable shoes to do a shoeshine on.
You will find beggers all over the place here. If you shake your head they will leave you alone after a few minutes..they will walk between cars at stop lights when the cops are not around to shoo them off. You will see everything you can imagine and some may break your heart but giving them money will only make the problem worse...
There is a solution...Hope Enterprises on Churchill St.
You can buy meal tokens here to hand out to the local kids so they don't waste the money on something they don't need. Like the LP books says..they feed alot of hungry faces each day and this is the best way to go if you feel the need to help out.
