A photo for practical purpose
Well, we are not a glamor photo studio, fashion photographer, photojournalist or press photographer. We do not edit, retouch, glamorize or decorate your picture/s. No! That is a no- no in our line of business. Our aim is to capture you as “you!” No more, no less. That is it! We want to show you as you are in your normal facial expression. Please no blinking, no smiling, no frowning, no crying or no other sort of crazy gestures. We don’t want you to wear excessive make ups, have an oily face or wear your fancy huts. No! Also, we don’t want you to wear over size dangling earrings, fancy eyeglasses or designer head wraps. Here they are not permitted.
In our line of business, we are required to take your picture just “plain”. Here, you will not see a nice fake backdrop like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Gold Gate bridge in San Francisco, a water fall from Niagara Falls or Time Square shoot from New York City. We will not add an illusion to your photos like fake blue sky, digital land escape or you will not hug a Teddy Bear or surrounded by digital zoo animals. In our studio there will be you, light, white background, chair, the camera and the photographer . Even we don’t say “Say cheese” because opening your mouse is not allowed. We will not make a squeaky noise to make you smile or even we will not try to tell you have a bit smile. Read More…

rested and ready to take on business after a good night’s sleep.
MD MRO Ethiopian Airlines Group, Zemene Nega, remarked, “We are pleased to
successfully complete the retrofitting project on our B777 fleet with our in-house capability

He said he has visited the factories in which they are made.He asked for the number of B-787 Dreamliners’ ET operates and Ato Tewolde replied to the President that Ethiopian has 13 in service and 8 on order.

· More humidity in the air which reduces fatigue and dryness,
· Largest windows in the air,
· Quietest airplane in its category,
· Saves 20% fuel burn from other airplanes in its category,
· Most environmental friendly airplane.
There was also discussions in honor of Colonel Robinson and in recognition to what he has done for Ethiopia and the Ethiopian people. Ethiopian Airlines has decided to name one of its airplanes after him.

Forget sunny Spain, enchanting Thailand and the romance of France: Ethiopia is named ‘World’s Best Tourism Destination’
Ethiopia has nine UNESCO World Heritage sites, which were heralded by the commission.
Tourism was defined as a tool for poverty eradication, for local community development and for economic independence is a successful strategy.
Ethiopia’s goal is to boost tourist revenues to $3 billion this year – in 2013 revenues from tourism were at $2 billion.
But instead of beach holidays and safaris, land-locked Ethiopia is promoting its imperial past – the below ground 13th century churches of Lalibela, hewn from solid rock, and the hill castles of Gondar – as well as its mountainous and majestic topography.
Visitor numbers have risen 12 percent a year in the past decade to reach 600,000 in 2014. The target at the end of this year is one million.
In the capital of Addis Ababa, the transformation from the starvation years and the ‘Red Terror’ purges of the 1970s and 1980s is plain to see. Construction is booming and a metro opens next year, cutting through the sprawling city — the only such network in sub-Saharan Africa.
The commission praised the the excellent preservation of humanity landmarks such as: ruins of the city of Aksum- the heart of ancient Ethiopia, Fasil Ghebbi- the residence of the Ethiopian emperors during the 16th and 17th century, Harar Jugol- 82 mosques, 102 shrines, and unique interior design in the townhouses and Lalibela – holy site encompassing 11 medieval stone carved churches from the 13th century.
The country has been praised for its outstanding natural beauty, dramatic landscapes and ancient culture, leading the European Council on Tourism and Trade to select it out of 31 countries as this year’s top holiday spot.
Ethiopia has been chosen as this year’s top destination in the world for tourists by the European Council on Tourism and Trade (ECTT), a non-profit group of European Union tourism trade organizations.
Africa’s second-most populated country was chosen for its “excellent preservation of humanity landmarks” such as the ruins of the city of Aksum, known as the heart of ancient Ethiopia, and Fasil Ghebbi, which served as the residence of the Ethiopian emperors during the 16th and 17th century.
It is also home to Harar Jugol—considered the fourth holiest Islamic city with 82 mosques, 102 shrines, and unique interior design in the townhouses—and Lalibela, a holy site encompassing 11 medieval stone carved churches from the 13th century.
Other sites include the Konso Cultural Landscape (containing 55 kilometers of stonewalled terraces and fortified settlements) and Lower Valley of the Awash, where the fossil remains of Lucy were discovered.
All these sites are registered as UNESCO World heritage monuments.
In addition to heritage sites, Ethiopia is recognized for its natural parks and reservations, including the Simien National Park.
The Ethiopian embassy celebrated the award with a tweet including some of the country’s popular tourist spots.

Ethiopian Airlines, the largest airline in Africa, is pleased to announce that it has started flights to Dublin and Los Angeles on 19 June 2015.
Ethiopian flights to Dublin and Los Angeles are operated three times a week with the ultramodern Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which offers unparalleled on-board comfort to passengers. The flights are the only direct service connecting Africa with Ireland and the West Coast of the United States.
Travelers from Los Angeles and Ireland will be able to enjoy seamless and convenient connectivity options thanks to Ethiopian extensive network in Africa covering 49 destinations.

“Our new flights connecting Addis Ababa, Dublin and Los Angeles will play a critical role in the expansion of trade, tourism investment between the fast growing continent of Africa, and the United States and Ireland. As the these flights are the first and only direct air route linking Africa with Ireland and the West Coat of the U.S., they will bring these two seemingly far away cities much closer to Africa and will facilitate mobility and connectivity for businesses and the large African Diaspora community living in the West Coast of the United States.
