For me, Ethiopia is up there with Egypt as the most fascinating country in Africa. There is so much history and culture, and the as the country was never colonised, the religion is truly indigienous. Even though the north of the country is steadfastedly Christian, this was freely adopted around 314AD - only some 40 years after Armenia - and not foisted onto it by missionaries, like so much of the continent. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church is completley unique, and this is seen in the devout way that the people celebrate Easter.
