The Square is not so crowded, but there are still Christians there excited about Christmas and there was a fabulous Ethiopian choir performing for a crowd of rapt admirers from around the world.

We walked around the square and went to the market. The market was filled with sights and mells I had never seen before. Good place to go to to really experience the culture of the people.
