Ethiopia is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. It lies in East Africa, set in a landscape of mountains and rivers - and the Blue Nile, which flows into the River Nile, rises here in Lake Tana. Our wildlife includes giraffes, elephants, zebras, crocodiles, hyenas, lions and all kinds of beautiful birds.

The country is rich in history. It has an important place in both the Christian and Muslim religions, with all kinds of colourful festivals. Thousands of people visit our ancient churches and mosques every year.

Ethiopian people follow many different traditions, make music in a variety of ways and speak several different languages. We love to dance, sing and have fun, especially on public holidays! Our food is spicy and delicious. The coffee bean originated in this country, and we hold a special coffee ceremony in which the aroma of roasted coffee, the incense we burn, and the pleasure of meeting each other all make for a unique experience.

E is for Ethiopia is the latest in the wide-ranging photographic World Alphabet series. The text and photographs in this book are by a group of young photographers in Ethiopia whose work is supported by the UK aid agency CAFOD, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.
