Looking north on the palm-tree lined Gambia Street in downtown Addis Ababa.
The National Theater is at the intersection of Gambia and Sudan.
There are several sensitive military installations in this area which I was not aware of, including the Ministry of Defense above left. Soldiers politely asked me to move along and not take photos at this intersection.
About two blocks north of Sudan Street begins the Piazza. On Thursday evening, the square was the location of a huge rally for promoting condom usage among youth.
