ADDIS ABABA MEET YOUR OLDEST Auntie, Lucy, in Africa’s cultural capital. The cultural capital of Africa, Addis Ababa. Overgrown, at times confusing, plenty of greenery, more eating options than the rest of the country.Greenery mixes with suburbia mixes with city in Addis. It's also very hilly.The first of many dawn departures across Ethiopia for us.A little rain won't stop a game of soccer.The city's Mercado bus terminal at first light. Most buses leave at "twelve", which is Ethiopian for six a.m..An array of buses criss-cross the city, if yo can squeeze in, and figure out where they are going.There is no shortage of nightlife in the Ethiopian capital. Hole in the wall bars and live music venues are found throughout the city.Lucy, our oldest ancestor, in the National Museum. Known in Amharic as "Dinkinesh", or AL288-1 to scientist, this 3.2million year old was found in the Afar Triangle, near Eritrea, in 1974.
