Well-stocked western-style supermarket - and they accept Visa. * '''Edna Mall''' on Telebole. Contains a large book store, and Ethiopia's only 3D multiplex cinema (three screens), which plays both Amharic and English-language films. Western films typically are shown within a week to a month of their U.S. release, though occasionally they may operate on European release schedules (for instance, Skyfall began showing at Edna Mall over a week before its U.S. premiere). The center of the mall features an arcade zone and an indoor amusement park with carousel, climbing tubes, and bumper cars; it's a fun place for small children, but really crowded on the weekends and holidays. Also located nearby are several dance clubs. * '''Dembel City Centre''' * '''Getu Commercial centre''' * '''Addis Sheraton Shopping''' * '''Loyal Shopping centre''' * '''Arat Kilo Shopping centre''' * '''Piassa Shopping centre''' * '''Bambis department store''', expensive euro-style supermarket located in Kazanches, near the Radisson, Hilton, and Sheraton hotels.

to Donald Levine. "It served rather as an agent for the quickened development of the Amhara's own culture. And thus it became a focus of national pride... not as a hotbed of alien custom and immorality, as they often regard Addis Ababa today, but as the most perfect embodiment of their traditional values."

Addis Ababa

'''Addis Ababa''' ( http: www.ethiodemographyandhealth.org Chapter_2_Population_Data_Sources.pdf

As a chartered city (city-state#Cities that are component states of federations) (''ras gez astedader''), Addis Ababa has the status of both a city and a state (Regions of Ethiopia). It is where the African Union and its predecessor the OAU (Organisation of African Unity) are based. It also hosts the headquarters of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and numerous other continental and international organizations. Addis Ababa is therefore often referred to as "the political capital of Africa" due to its historical, diplomatic and political significance for the continent.

The city is populated by people from different regions of Ethiopia – the country has as many as 80 nationalities speaking 80 languages and belonging to a wide variety of religious communities. It is home to Addis Ababa University. The Federation of African Societies of Chemistry (FASC) and Horn of Africa Press Institute (HAPI) are also headquartered in Addis Ababa.
