Addis Hiking- A Trip to Ankober

Somewhere in Addis Ababa, it was 6:45 in the morning. I arrived at the bus stop in a rush. It was parked next to Axum Hotel with a group of people were standing around it, conversing. I can sense the excitement coursing through!


Marrakech Popular Arts Festival

In July the temperature reaches close to 40oC in Marrakech, Morocco. But the temperature is not the hottest thing that happens during that month.


Diplomatic Bazaar

On the 7th of December, in the early morning chill, there was a long queue of people waiting for “the event” to commence and most were anxious to get in and see what the fuss was all about. So, what was the fuss all about?

Furniture & Lifestyle

Name: Zola’s Playground

Among the innovative disruptors in the interior space has to be this modern man-sized “playground”.

Mostly working on an online order basis, there are many beautiful, simple and multipurpose items from to choose from.

African wax art is often incorporated into the designs, and the clever use of materials such as pallets, recycled plastic pots and re-used wood are assuring that eco-friendly sustainable practices are given value.
