Here’s a quick summary:
Phone: Go to Ethio Telecom and get 300mb for $2

Cheap Flights: Get a discount on local flights if you fly into the country via Ethiopian Airlines
Customs: Don’t bring two laptops
Flight Tip: Show up early or else… you’ll see in my video

– Mosquito net for sleeping
– Dual USB Travel Adapter
– Lifestraw bottle to reduce water bottle waste (there’s no recycling in Ethiopia)
– Basic disposable dust masks
– Aeropress if you don’t want to walk out for coffee every day
