Stay safe section[edit]

Regarding the following statement: "…Once you show your passport at the airport, you are free to move around pretty much anywhere…" This is mostly true. In 2004 I rode a minibus from Nazareth (Adama) to Addis, in the late evening after the regular buses stopped running. The police stopped us when we reached the outskirts of Addis and all the male passengers had to get out of the vehicle. I assume they were checking for contraband or weapons, and was told this only happened at night. I honestly don't remember if they checked my passport, though. There was no questioning. The men got out, the police/soldiers looked inside, we got back in and that was it (except by that point it had started to rain). This was not a big deal, but at the same time I don't think it's entirely accurate to say that one may freely go anywhere. In any event, it is generally advised that you make this sort of trip during daylight hours. -- (WT-en) Gyrofrog (talk) 16:13, 29 May 2007 (EDT)

Shopping centers[edit]

Understand. Regarding this statement: "Addis Ababa is also one of the best and biggest shopping cities in Africa with 12-15 shoppingcenters in the centre of Addis Ababa.". This simply can't be true. At most there are about 8 supermarkets and about one shopping centre.

Please plunge forward and make the changes as you deem appropriate! --(WT-en) Peter Talk 13:53, 5 February 2009 (EST)

Phone numbers are out of date should be +251 11 XXX XXXX as of 17 Sep 2005[edit]

The article appears to be full of out of date phone numbers from pre 2006 when the city changed from a 6 digit number to a 7 digit number. Number should be +251 11 XXX XXXX. However most are +251 11 XXXXXX. If the phone numbers are 4 years+ out of date I assume all the listings content is out of date as well.(WT-en) felix 05:15, 4 December 2010 (EST)

Guide and DotM[edit]

This is one of our better articles (content-wise at least) of a major African city and I think it would make a nice Destination of the month someday. Africa is still underrepresented among our featured articles, though the situation has got better over the last years.

The article needs to be tidied up a little — some bulleted points need to be turned into proper listings etc. — and we have to check that everything is up to date before the article goes on the main page, and then upgraded to guide status. There's no rush, though, the article could be featured sometime in the latter half of 2018 at earliest. Also, given that it sometime still is hard finding information about points of interest in African destinations on the Internet, it's good that we have a local editing here.
