The Walled City of Eastern Ethiopia
The city of Harar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Harar is recognized as the fourth most holy Muslim city in the world, hosting pilgrims after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem. For its culture: there are several museums, notably Arthur Rimabaud's house, colorful markets, and numerous mosques. The city is located at altitude, with a warm and very sunny climate, which provides a very beautiful view over the region from some spots. You can also spend a day visiting one of the traditional villages built on the ridge of the mountains.
Feeding the Hyenas
Every night just beyond the old city's walls, hyenas gather to be fed by a brave Harari. While some tourists enjoy the show, the tradition actually has roots in an old belief that taking care of the hyenas would result in peace and prosperity for the city.
