After a frustrating time exiting Addis Ababa airport and driving through barren streets only to arrive at the grand gates of the Sheraton Addis.
Once through the equally grand main entrance (and the obligatory metal detector) you enter a 5 star hotel which is the equal of it's counterparts worldwide. The staff are very attentive and helpful, everything is very slick and it works.
What is unfortunate is that Addis Ababa is so very different than the hotel. Addis is poor, really poor. Everything in the hotel is expensive and I felt guilty staying in my plush room and paying for a breakfast that was probably more than a months salary of some of the staff who work there. Although expensive I felt a little better by giving generous tips to all the staff that had been so helpful!!!
