p 381 – “Green Crater Lake”
The name “Green Crater Lake” is not known to the locals, and perhaps you should consider naming it Aranguade Bahir Lake which is the name the locals are using (and which you also mention in your text). The name Hora Hado does not seem to be used, and it may be confused with Lake Hora. The dirt road to the lake, which branches off to the west just south of Bishoftu is an awful rutted track, not passable by a gari. The lake can be reached by walking for 2-3 hours from the main Bishoftu – Adama road or by a 4×4.

Entrance fee was raised to 20 Birr
2. p. 420 – Harar – Feres Megala
Perhaps a few words about the curious monument in the center of Feres Megala could be of interest to your readers. The monument commemorates the 1887 Battle of Chelenko, in which the Moslem forces lost to the Christian forces headed by Menelik II. The day of the battle is commemorated by the Harari regional government. I googled “the battle of Chelenko” and found this news item:
“The 121st anniversary of the battle of Chelenko was commemorated in the Harari Regional State on Sunday January 13th, 2008. Harari government officials placed a wreath of fresh flowers at the Chelenko martyrs monument in Faras Magala. A special prayer services were held for the martyrs, along with songs to commemorate their heroism and sacrifices.”
It definitely shows something about the current government of Ethiopia which allows its former vanquished enemies to commemorate their day of demise and use the term “martyrs” to boot.
