Hi Ana
  Although I am not Filipino or live in Ethiopia I can just give you a basic knowledge about Ethiopia. First congrats on your movement. You will have a good time while your stay in Ethiopia. I have notice there are so many Filipino professors in Addis Abeba so once you get there you would be able to find more info. Until then try to go out Bole area and just hang out. That's where all foreigners comes to hang out and meet people. If there is anything in specific you need to know feel free to private message me and I will try my best to help. Good Luck and enjoy your time in Ethiopia.

THank you for being so kind. Did you lived or had the chance to stay in ethiopia? I really am not sure that I will be assigned in the capital most probably in the northen part. Can you please give me an idea on how life is in the northen part? That is if you have any knowledge or experience. Thank you. Have a nice day

   Yes, I do travel a lot and I am originally from Ethiopia. I have lived mostly in the city but I'v been in the north and else where. One thing I will tell you is you nothing to worry about anywhere you go. People are extremely friendly and sometimes if might over whelmed you. It;s just because they are interested in getting to know you that's all. They are also very helpful, Just take your time to get to know the area and the people. Also see if there is any activity after work where you can go and meet people. Make connection and don't be afraid to go out have fun with people you have meet and felt comfortable with. I am sure you will find plenty of people and you would definitely like it.
