Hi, Guenet. I learned that Ethiopia is an old, attractive country from your essay. Would you be a bit more specific? For example, you spoke of customs and traditions, then you try to talk about waht is different about them in your country?

Guenet!Thank you for all the information about your country. It is very interesting! But I would like to learn more about some things. For example you wrote about mountains and I think you can give more details about them. Also it's good to use more adjectives. In that way we can make the text more informative and colorful.
