Mercato, Addis Ababa 2010

Brightly patterned mattresses, hastily piled for sale in Africa’s largest open-air bazar, silhouette a passer by. Apples, Anise and AK-47s – anything can be found here if you have the time. Don’t expect colorful placards to aid navigating the teeming throngs. One tourism website recommends, “Try not to look like a tourist here…” Sure.
