Ethiopian cooking can be heavy on meat - but #DidYouKnow that #Ethiopia's cuisine is full of delicious dishes that are perfect for #vegetarian, #vegan, #glutenfree and #lactosefree eaters.

Part of what makes Ethiopian #food perfect for so many diets is that there’s always a “fasting” (or animal-free) option: Many Ethiopians are Orthodox Christians and traditionally eat vegan on Wednesdays and Fridays, as well as other special days.

From Shiro to Gomen, here is a list of 17 DELICIOUS Ethiopian dishes all kinds of eaters can enjoy. Via +BuzzFeed

We're kicking off #WildlifeWednesday with this photo of the 'handsome' Mountain Nyala, a large spiral-horned #antelope, endemic to #Ethiopia.

Bale Mountains #NationalPark is the last main stronghold for the endangered mountain nyala. They are most often seen on the short walking trail that runs through the juniper-hagenia forest around the park headquarters at Dinsho.

The University of #Toronto has began holding classes in Ge'ez, becoming one of the only places in the world where students can learn the ancient #Ethiopia|n language.

Professor Michael Gervers, a history professor at U of T Scarborough, helped launch the course with a $50,000 donation and a call to Toronto's #Ethiopian community to contribute. The call was answered and the donation matched by none other than Toronto native and Grammy-award winning artist Abel Tesfaye, a.k.a. #TheWeeknd.

Rude staff (older lady in visa section - I'm looking at you). Contradicting instructions as to what documents are required for visa application. As a result nearly £300 lost in cancelled flights and transfers. Sure Simien mountains sound beautiful, but so does words like Kenya and Tanzania.

Efficient and friendly, got my visas very quickly. I suspect those who give lower scores haven't prepared properly. It's all very simple, just read the instructions on the Embassy web site and do what they ask. If you don't, you won't get very far, but it's not the Embassy's fault!

World's rudest and most grumpiest lady at the desk of an embassy award definitely goes to the lady that works here! Apart from that, it's all good; the younger staff are okay. They like to hike up fees regularly too.

Be prepared, Make sure you have all the info you need. Things like Where you plan to stay,contact details, addresses etc.. I usually download the visa form from the net and fill it in advance, Saves you time. Also you need to make sure you have passport sized photos for the visa app. I've learned my lesson, wasted a whole day.When you do get to the Embassy,the staff there are not very helpful, the service is very slow, they hardly acknowledge your presence. And when you do ask them questions they seem to get annoyed. The best thing to do is be well prepared,read up on the requirements. Other than that, Ethiopia is a wonderful country, have fun and enjoy your trip. Good luck.
