Ethiopia -  never colonized, a megalomaniac rasta emperor, communist terror, guerilla warfare, famine, live-aid, Lucy, the source of the Nile, King Solomon's mines, if there is one country in Africa that appeals to the imagination (in both positive and negative senses) it must be Ethiopia. From impassible mountain ranges to vast desserts, 'primitive' tribes to age-old rock churches - a fascinating country with fascinating people.
