Addis Ababa - Post Report Question and Answers

Morale among expats:

Decent. Many call Addis "Africa Light." - Jun 2012

Good to excellent in my opinion. - Aug 2010

Fairly good. There are lots of work-related difficulties, whether you work in health or education or business or government. But Ethiopians are hospitable people, and Addis is a fairly easy place to live. - Jun 2010

Fair to good. It depends on who you're talking to and which season it is. The rainy season is rough, and many people leave for its duration. But the rest of the year, the climate is dreamy. There is lots of construction going on and new restaurants are popping up. There's also a new movie theatre, so morale is improving, I think. - Mar 2008
