Missing Africa just a bit

I saw this picture the other day on a photo stream. It has so many of the classic Addis Ababa sights all in one angle – the red city buses with the lion on the side, the blue Toyota taxis, the car that won’t start (it’s actually illegal in Africa to have a car that starts), the rickety wooden scaffolding for a new cement building (top left), the shanties across the street made of corrugated aluminum, rocks, and dirt, the high altitude tropical trees, and a guy on the street with an Orthodox prayer staff. I hope I get to go back some day.
