Priscilla, this is very interesting to look in Ethiopia. It is unbelievably ease  to be familiar here in Ethiopia, because people here is open to be friendly, weather condition is moderate for all new comers whom are coming from high land, and/or tropical area.
In my opinion no barrier here is blocking your  success. Your decision to be here is the only thing that makes you successful and I promise to make things better.
Have a good time
