I have no idea what Ethiopia is like. I'm a paranoid South African - we live in fear for our lives all the time. I lost my brother to criminals in South Africa. So I know it's more dangerous in my home country than Ethiopia. Still, losing my brother has made life really difficult and scary! So I am just really cautious about where I go. I just want to know if it's safe to transit through Addis Ababa and if Ethiopian Airlines is safe. I've read about hijackings in the past and I'm not familiar with the way things are politically in Ethiopia. Please let me know if it's safe?
