What was the grim fate he escaped?

addis ababa, Ethiopia

Postby Talisman » October 29th, 2012, 10:10 am

I spent a month in Addis this last summer. What brought me there were a few girlfriends...one good, an angel, one bad, a she-cunt. The city is at a high elevation and surrounded by green mountains: there are downpours everyday for a few hours, although the "13 months of sunshine" are a prevelant feature of the rhythm of the winter. The people live mainly in shanty towns--I lived in this shanty town. There is no real running water (no hot water), or flushing toilets (outhouses) but they have satellite TV. The main undercurrent of the society is the poverty and difficulty of making money, so there's a culture of scam in their mentality, as well as a "poor me" attitude because of the situation. Ethiopians are very religious (they claim to house the Ark of the Covenant in Axum), and it is cool how the mosques and the churches sit side by side. There are some awesome prayers broadcast in the mornings and at night which provide a mystic kind of atmosphere. But, be wary once any c**ts catch wind of money--religions out the door at that point. Generally, it felt safe, just scams could be involved. They are proud of their roots , and of not having been colonized, and have a strong black identity consciousness. I actually ran into Rita Marley inside the Holy Trinity Church as she performed Rastafari prayers, so, yeah, the culture is interesting.
Meeting women other than prostitutes wasn't easy. There's a lot of pressure to conform to their roots and not be seen with a white man. Dudes there cockblock, staring down girls who I walked with. I didn't like it for that. Yeah, there are beautiful Amharic girls--but they aren't particularly looking for you, unless they are prostitutes, basically.
It's going through what they call the "Ethiopian Rennaissance," with a lot of building the place into a more modern city. I wasn't all that psyched about it. Living there would probably be challenging, although, Ethiopia is an adventure. In Harar I fed some hyenas.

I respect Ethiopia's history and pride... and they happen to be one of the few churches that it is "okay" for Armenians to intermarry and mingle with. The people are good-looking and intelligent. Decent food too. Plus they supposedly have an archaic treaty with the U.S. allowing easy long-stay. And some mixed Armenian/Ethiopians live there.

So any thanks for the report.

But I am crossing it off my list for bridehunting as a result of your report. Sounds like dating Ethiopians over there would be as difficult, as much an uphill struggle, for a White-looking guy, as dating one over here. (Roosh has written extensively about this.) I don't need to change the world. Or to subject girlfriends or children to unnecessary difficulty.

Still hope to visit Axum some day, and see the Ark of the Covenant... through the security gates.
