Get the cool shoe shine!

Walking the streets of Addis Ababa you can easily notice that Ethiopians are not shy when it comes to get creative in order to make a living.

Shoe shining is quite a popular activity in the capital city’s streets. I guess they like their shoes neat and shinny!

This is one of the shoe shiners we came across while walking around the city. He has a pretty good display of accessories for his work and a shaded area which is much appreciated when the sun shines ever more than your shoes after you pay him a visit!
