Ethiopia, Djibouti & Somaliland - Western Ethiopia (Chapter)
This is the Western Ethiopia chapter from Lonely Planet's Ethiopia, Djibouti & Somaliland guidebook.

Rainforests, coffee plantations and agricultural towns share the landscape with grasslands, wildlife-infested swamps and high plateaus carpeted in fields of tef (an indigenous grass cultivated as a cereal).
