Eritrea , officially the State of Eritrea, is a country in the Horn of Africa. With its capital at Asmara, it is bordered by Sudan to the west, Ethiopia in the south, and Djibouti in the southeast. The northeastern and eastern parts of Eritrea have an extensive coastline along the Red Sea, across from Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The nation has a total area of approximately 117,600 km2 (45,406 sq mi), and includes the Dahlak Archipelago and several of the Hanish Islands. Its name Eritrea is based on the Ancient Greek name for the Red Sea (Ἐρυθρὰ Θάλασσα Eruthra Thalassa), which was first adopted for Italian Eritrea in 1890.

Eritrea is a multi-ethnic country, with nine recognized ethnic groups. It has a population of around six million inhabitants. Most residents speak Afro-Asiatic languages, either of the Semitic or Cushitic branches. Among these communities, the Tigray-Tigrinya people make up about 55% of the population, with the Tigre people constituting around 30% of inhabitants. In addition, there are a number of Nilo-Saharan-speaking Nilotic ethnic minorities. Most people in the territory adhere to Christianity or Islam.

The Kingdom of Aksum, covering much of modern-day Eritrea and northern Ethiopia, rose somewhere around the first or second centuries and adopted Christianity around the time Islam had spread through Egypt and the Levant. In medieval times much of Eritrea fell under the Medri Bahri Kingdom, with a smaller region being part of the Hamasien Republic. The creation of modern day Eritrea is a result of the incorporation of independent Kingdoms and various vassal states of the Ethiopian empire and the Ottoman Empire, eventually resulting in the formation of Italian Eritrea. In 1947 Eritrea became part of a federation with Ethiopia, the Federation of Ethiopia and Eritrea. Subsequent annexation into Ethiopia led to the Eritrean War of Independence, ending with Eritrean independence following a referendum in April 1993. Hostilities between Eritrea and Ethiopia persisted, leading to the Eritrean–Ethiopian War of 1998–2000 and further skirmishes with both Djibouti and Ethiopia.

Eritrea is a member of the African Union, the United Nations and IGAD, and is an observer in the Arab League.

The Red Sea coast of Eritrea was occupied by early anatomically modern humans during the last interglacial period. According to linguists, the first Afro-Asiatic-speaking populations arrived in the region during the ensuing Neolithic era from the family's proposed urheimat (original homeland) in the Nile Valley, or the Near East. Other scholars propose that the Afro-Asiatic family developed in situ in the Horn, with its speakers subsequently dispersing from there. Together with Djibouti, Ethiopia, northern Somalia, and the Red Sea coast of Sudan, Eritrea is considered the most likely location of the land known to the Ancient Egyptians as Punt, whose first mention dates to the 25th century BC.

By 2000 BC, Agaw peoples speaking a proto-Ethiopic language ancestral to Ge'ez are believed to have migrated from southeastern Eritrea. Along with other local groups, they had already established linguistic and cultural identities by the time Sabaean influences were introduced from Southern Arabia.

Excavations at Sembel found evidence of an ancient pre-Aksumite civilization in greater Asmara. This Ona urban culture is believed to have been among the earliest pastoral and agricultural communities in the Horn region. Artefacts at the site have been dated to between 800 BC and 400 BC, contemporaneous with other pre-Aksumite settlements in the Eritrean and Ethiopian highlands during the mid-first millennium BC. Qohaito was another ancient pre-Aksumite city in southern Eritrea. It is often identified as the town Koloe described in the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea, a Greco-Roman document dated to the end of the first century AD.

D'mt was a kingdom located in southern Eritrea and northern Ethiopia that existed during the 8th and 7th centuries BC. With its capital at Yeha, the realm developed irrigation schemes, used plows, grew millet, and made iron tools and weapons. After the fall of Dʿmt in the 5th century BC, the plateau came to be dominated by smaller successor kingdoms until the rise of one of these polities during the first century, the Kingdom of Aksum, which was able to reunite the area.

10 Most Dangerous Tourist Destinations in the World

Get more Tips here!

While escaping the everyday routine to go on an extreme vacation, some risky places require a lot more preparation and forethought than others. Aside from the war-torn hotspots, here are a handful of dangerous places that you might dare to visit.

1. Kokoda Track, Papua New Guinea
The Kokoda Track presents many challenges and dangers to the increasing number of adventurers that it accommodates, but by far the greatest danger is the perpetual infestation of malarial mosquitoes.

2. Death Road, Bolivia
Claiming around 250 lives per year, the aptly named Death Road is one of the most dangerous roads in the world. One wrong move, and you could end up plummeting down a 2,000-foot vertical drop. At its highest, the road reaches over 15,000 feet before descending to only 3,900 feet above sea level.

3. Chernobyl, Ukraine
The whole region, spanning some 1,000 square miles, was evacuated in 1986 due to the devastating explosion at the local nuclear power plant. However, the danger comes not so much from radiation any more, but the countless precariously abandoned buildings.

4. Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
The Cliffs of Moher reach a maximum height of 700 feet, but with the huge vertical drops right into the sea and frequent high winds, you certainly won’t want to veer too close to the edge. Sadly the cliffs also have a reputation for attracting self-destructive and even suicidal behavior.

5. Acapulco, Mexico
The crime rate has become astronomical in recent years, running at nearly 30 times higher than the US average. The vast majority of the crime largely involves drug cartels and does not specifically target tourists. However, you best take heed before planning a trip to this pretty seaside town

6. New Smyrna Beach, Florida
Named one of the world’s 20 best surfing towns by National Geographic in 2012, this unfortunate region also has highest number of shark attacks anywhere in the world. There have been 238 incidents on record, 12 in 2008 alone.

7. Danakil Depression, Ethiopia
This is a highly active volcanic region. It’s also extremely inhospitable, being one of the hottest spots on Earth. Unfortunately, the area is made even more uninviting due to border disputes with neighboring Eritrea.

8. Mount Everest, Nepal
Standing just over 29,000 feet above sea level at the summit, the air is so thin that oxygen tanks and breathing masks are essential. Over 250 people have died attempting to reach the summit. Many bodies still lie frozen in the snow. Some have earned nicknames and serve as trail markers along Everest’s routes.

9. Hua Shan, China
The walk consists of unstable wooden boards precariously clinging to the cliffs. With no guard rails and a largely unstable construction, many lives have been claimed by this walk, which features drops of up to 7,000 feet.

10. Mont Blanc, France
With a peak of over 16,000 feet, Mont Blanc in France is one of the most breathtaking yet dangerous hiking spots in Europe. There's a threat of high wind speeds and a constant risk of avalanches. The mountain has claimed dozens of lives in recent decades.

Cleanest City in Africa? KIGALI, RWANDA

You will not believe how clean KIGALI, RWANDA is until you watch this video. I am beyond shocked -- as I had no idea it was this clean and safe until coming here!!

For a brief history lesson - Back in 1994, Rwanda suffered one of the bloodiest genocides in modern history. Within 100 days (April 7 - mid July), roughly 20% of the population, or 1 million people, were slaughtered due to tribal conflicts of land ownership. It was devastating, and feels realistic to me when I learn about it because it happened within my lifetime.

Fast forward 24 years, and the capital of Kigali has done a remarkable job reconstructing and rebuilding itself to be a leading African city in terms of modernity, safety, cleanliness and tech (the wifi here is the strongest I've seen on the continent!)

The streets are so clean here in Rwanda that I could eat off them... I'm being serious! I am having flashbacks to walking around Singapore - especially when I went to a swanky rooftop infinity pool over looking the city (reminds me exactly of the Marina Bay Sands).

Have you ever been to Kigali? Or Rwanda? Do you agree with me?

Ethiopian Food - The ONE DISH You Have To Eat in ETHIOPIA!

►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week:
►T-shirts and caps available now:

One of my main missions when I visited Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was to learn about how to cook what is for sure one of the most special of all Ethiopian foods: doro wat (ዶሮ ወጥ). Of course, they do serve it at restaurants in Addis Ababa, but there’s nothing like seeing the entire process of a dish, especially a stew like doro wat from start to finish, beginning with a chicken, and finishing by eating. It’s a very complicated dish to make, and it takes utmost care and time. I want to say a huge thank you to Belaneh and his family for graciously inviting us to their home and for cooking the most amazing doro wat - or even Ethiopian food meal - ever.

What is doro wat (ዶሮ ወጥ)? Doro means chicken and wat means stew - so it’s an Ethiopian chicken stew. It’s a very special dish to eat in Ethiopia, not an everyday food because it takes so much time to prepare properly. As many Ethiopians told me, it’s a dish they often eat when family comes together, and during special holidays and religious days.

I would go as far as saying Doro Wat is one of the best dishes in the world. The complexity yet harmony of spices, the richness, the contrast of taste when paired with injera - your taste buds will be blown off your tongue! Thank you to Bela and his incredible family, they took no shortcuts on making doro wat, and beyond the delicious food, it was so extremely special to get to know them and hang out with them.

We first went to the fresh wet market in Addis Ababa to buy a chicken, the live chicken. We then gathered a few more ingredients, including the chopped red onions, which is the main component of doro wat sauce, and went back to Bela’s home. Butchering a chicken in Ethiopian, due to some of the Ethiopian Orthodox traditions, needs to be butchered in a certain way, and washed and cleaned many times. It was by far the most cleansed chicken I’ve ever seen or eaten. The onions simmered for a few hours before we started adding in the berbere blend spice and finally the chicken went in to brew with the amazing spices.

To eat Ethiopian food, you first typically build a plate or platter of injera, and then scoop the food onto the injera. We all shared a platter and scooped on the beautiful doro wat. It was unbelievably delicious, so rich and packed with spice.

Again, thank you to Bela and his wife (and baby) for cooking us one of the most special meals you can eat in Ethiopia.

Kategna Restaurant - Ethiopian food you shouldn't miss in Addis Ababa

Kategna restaurant was one of the best restaurants I ate at while I was in Addis Ababa. The menu is extremely extensive, and the food is amazing! More info:

One of the highlights of visiting Ethiopia, is eating Ethiopian food, and when you're in Addis Ababa there are many amazing restaurants to choose from. Kategna Restaurant is a well known favorite for locals that live in Addis Ababa, straight up because it's a nice environment, and most importantly, the food is outstanding. During the course of my stay in Addis Ababa, I went to Kategna restaurant a number of times, unable to resist the delicious flavors and nice atmosphere of the restaurant.

I began with a giant platter of Yetsom Beyaynetu, a mix of vegetarianan fasting dishes. The mix came out, beautifully arranged on a giant platter, filled with the wonderful assortment of different curries and stews. There was misir wat, a red lentil stew, some different kinds of salads, and gomen, which is collard greens. Though it might not be a traditional method of ordering, I decided to go for another dish known as doro wat, a famous Ethiopian food that's a chicken stew made from onions, berbere spices, and lots of butter. Also, the egg in the doro wat is one of the highlights. The doro wat was scooped directly onto the pile of injera, mingling with the other wonderful ingredients.

As you can already imagine, I was so incredibly excited to begin my feast at Kategna restaurant, my mouth juices were flowing. There were two different colors of injera that I got served, something I didn't really notice from other restaurants I ate at while I was in Addis Ababa. But after tasting both, they really almost tasted identical. I quickly grabbed pieces of injera, ripping it off the roll and digging it into the juicy curries. The flavor combination were out of control delicious. The vegetarian mix of yetsom beaynetu was excellent. Then it was time to devour the doro wat. The piece of chicken was oddly small, just a time bone with a little bit of meat, but the sauce and egg together were so delicious, that I honestly almost forgot about the chicken itself. The sauce was dripping with flavor!

Despite Kategna restaurant being on the nicer side of the restaurant spectrum, the prices are incredibly reasonable. For me entire feast in the video, including the coffee at the end, our total bill came to 230 ETB ($11.85), and believe it or not, I was actually stuffed full for almost the entire day afterwards, I hardly have to eat any dinner! There are two main locations of the restaurant in Addis Ababa, one just off Gabon street (the one featured in this video) and the other is just off Bole road very near to the airport. I went to both locations during my time in Addis, and they were both of equal greatness, and even the atmosphere was just about the same.

When you visit Addis Ababa, one of the best restaurants is Kategna restaurant, and you should not miss out on the opportunity to eat there!

--------------------------

Yemen is an Arab country in Western Asia at the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula. Yemen is the second-largest country in the peninsula, occupying 527,970 km2(203,850 sq mi). It is bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north, the Red Sea to the west, the Gulf of Adenand Arabian Sea to the south, and Oman to the east-northeast. Although Yemen's constitutionally stated capital is the city of Sana'a, the city has been under rebel control since February 2015. Because of this, Yemen's capital has been temporarily relocated to the port city of Aden, on the southern coast. Yemen's territory includes more than 200 islands; the largest of these is Socotra.

With its long sea border between eastern and western civilizations, Yemen has long existed at a crossroads of cultures with a strategic location in terms of trade on the west of the Arabian Peninsula. Large settlements for their era existed in the mountains of northern Yemen as early as 5000 BC.

Yemen was the home of the Sabaeans (biblical Sheba), a trading state that flourished for over a thousand years and also included parts of modern-day Ethiopia and Eritrea. In 275 AD, the region came under the rule of the later Jewish-influenced Himyarite Kingdom. Christianity arrived in the fourth century, whereas Judaism and local paganism were already established. Islam spread quickly in the seventh century and Yemenite troops were crucial in the expansion of the early Islamic conquests.

Administration of Yemen has long been notoriously difficult. Several dynasties emerged from the ninth to 16th centuries, the Rasulid dynasty being the strongest and most prosperous. The country was divided between the Ottoman and British empires in the early twentieth century.

The Zaydi Mutawakkilite Kingdom of Yemen was established after World War I in North Yemen before the creation of the Yemen Arab Republic in 1962. South Yemen remained a British protectorate known as the Aden Protectorate until 1967 when it became an independent state and later, a Marxist state. The two Yemeni states united to form the modern republic of Yemen in 1990.

Incredible UNSEEN FOOD of AFRICA - Dorze Ethnic Group in Ethiopia!

►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week:
►T-shirts and caps available now:

This is Part 2 of our Ethiopian village cultural food tour. If you haven’t already seen Part 1, you can watch it here:

From the incredible Konso Village, we drove back to Arba Minch in Ethiopia, and then continued driving into the mountains, to a Dorze ethnic people village, high into the misty peaks. This is the village where Dessie is originally from, and also our driver, so they know everyone there. It was amazing to arrive to the village.

One of the amazing parts of Dorze Ethiopian culture are their elephant shaped traditional huts, which are unique and one of a kind, shaped like elephants. One of the main most important foods of the Dorze is false banana, also known as ensete. It’s called a false banana because they plant does not produce banana fruit, but just giant leaves, and you eat the stump.

Aunty made a number of extremely unique dishes, including a false banana porridge, and a false banana pancake, along with coffee leaves tea - something I had never seen or ever heard of before.

Visiting the Dorze of Ethiopia was an incredible culture and food learning experience, and it was an honor to have a chance to visit on this Ethiopian food tour trip.

Thanks to Dessie from Go Addis Tours ( for arranging everything on this trip.
