I had a wonderful time staying with Louis and his wife Miheret. They made me incredibly welcome in their house; giving me a key, ensuring the water in the shower was hot and inviting me to join the family for dinner. Miheret makes the most incredible breakfast; pancakes, tea, coffee, yoghurt, toast! Sooo good! When I went on my Danakil depression tour they were kind enough to let me leave things in the room ready for my return.
Their house is in a lovely location near the university and the derg monument. There are various restaurants and shops in the area. Getting to the cbd is also very easy.
Louis knows Mekele very well, I was really amazed. He took lots of time to draw me a map for all the things I wanted to do. He showed me where to get the taxi and one day we were leaving at the same time and all went together. Louis also picked me from the bus station when I arrived. Whatever I wanted to know or have Louis and Miheret were always so helpful. They made my trip in Ethiopia very special.
Staying with Louis and Miheret is a MUST when you are in Mekele. No where else can you get such a warm, comfortable and pleasant stay. I hope I can stay with them again soon.
