Description:   Ethiopia is a large landlocked country in East Africa. It is the oldest independent country in the world and apart from a few years of Italian occupation was never colonised and ruled by a monarchy up until 1974 when the last Emperor Haille Salassie was ousted by a military junta. The language is also one of the oldest continually spoken languages in the world. Its origins go back to Biblical times. There are some stunningly beautiful ruins and sights dating back centuries.
