Dorze Village Arba Minch
You will see locals walking briskly up and down the road, lots of small children running along waving and grinning and clusters of small stalls near the village displaying cleverly woven hats and other wares.
We even got to try it ourselves inside the hut with a cup of coffee together with the family living there.
Lake Tana Bahir Dar
Fishing is good and keeps the kids entertained.
Something for all - families, young and old.

Harar Jegol Wall Harar
Another interestin place, Emaj managed to get the village children under control (by buying them a round of ice cream, good idea!) and showed quite educated concern about the local people's standard of liviing.
We ended up being surrounded by 30 kids (young/teenagers) who were throwing stones at us when we refused to give them money (and we are not talking small stones).

Fasil Ghebbi Gonder
... in the Fasil Gibi you can visit many attractive palaces starting from the main Fasil palace to his children’s palaces, those palaces were built during the 16th century but they are one of the graceful landmark...
The Ethiopian royal family built all the castles within the walls before Gondar lost its power and the capital was moved to Addis Ababa in the late 19th century.

Ethnological Museum Addis Ababa
One thing I found funny and interesting was the part where in one of the cultures men have to stick fight and the winner marries the loser's sister, lol (awkward much during family gatherings).
My kids (ages 12 & 14) were mostly bored, but those with some greater interest in Ethiopian culture might enjoy it.
