Glorious Guassa

Thirteen-year-old Nouria Saleban, our youngest contributor to date, tells us about geladas, wolves and touching the stars in the Ethiopian highlands

There’s a region in Ethiopia called Guassa, which means ‘grass’ in the Amharic language. There are many reasons that it is worth visiting and I’d like to tell you a few.

It took five hours to get there by car from our home in Addis Ababa and the last part of our trip was the most scenic.
