  • Asmara --City -- Capital City of Eritrea

    Originally, according to Eritrean Tigrinya oral traditional history, there were four clans living in the Asmara area on the Kebessa Plateau: the Gheza Gurtom, the Gheza Shelele, the Gheza Serenser and Gheza Asmae. These towns fought each other until the women of each clan decided that to preserve peace the four clans must unite. The men accepted, hence the name Arbate Asmera. Arbate Asmara literally means, in the Tigrinya language, "the four (feminine plural) made them unite".[3] Eventually Arbate was dropped and it has been called Asmara which means "they [feminine, thus referring to the women] made them unite". There is still a district called Arbaete Asmara in the Administrations of Asmara. It is now called the Italianized version of the word Asmara. The westernized version of the name ...

    http://www.madote.com/ Here's what tourists are saying about beautiful Asmara, Eritrea. ------ The capital of newly independent Eritrea, Asmara is one of the most beautiful and pleasant cities in the whole of Africa, if not anywhere in the World. Situated at an elevation of 2400 metres above sea-level, its climate is pleasantly cool, but also dry and sunny for much of the year. Architecturally, it is a real feast for the eyes. Having been the centre of Italian colonial efforts in Africa in the first part of the 20th century, Asmara was blessed with beautiful buildings that would only draw praise in Italy as well. Even after the Italians were gone, the city has managed to escape the raveges of third world development, and has amazingly even survived the wars with Ethiopia intact. Current ...

    The Embassy advises US citizens to avoid the downtown area where protests appear to be more prevalent. Streets in the downtown area may be closed, and police continue to maintain a significant presence,” the embassy said. Video footage circulating on social media, purported to be from Asmara, showed people running down streets as rapid gunfire boomed. In a posting on Twitter, Eritrea’s Information Minister Yemane Gebremeskel said a “small demonstration by one school in Asmara” was “dispersed without any casualty”. In an angrily dismissive message, he insisted it was “hardly breaking news” which had claimed no casualties. Eritrean website, Asmarino, said the protest was triggered by government plans to nationalise a private Islamic school, with pro-government site Madote saying it is part...

Security forces responded by firing shots to disperse protesters, unverified video footage widely circulated on social media shows. The protests were staged by students who were angered by government interference in the affairs of a community-funded Muslim school. Information Minister Yemane Meskel downplayed reports of violence. "Small demonstration by one school in Asmara dispersed without any causality hardly breaking news," he said in a tweet. However, the US embassy in Asmara said it had received reports of gunfire in "several locations" on Tuesday. The authorities also appear to have cut the internet in the wake of the unrest, as no messages are being received from people in the country, the BBC Tigrinya service's Tesfalem Araia says. Could pariah state Eritrea come in from the cold? Why do so many people want to leave Eritrea for Europe? The protests were staged by students of Diae Al Islam, one of the best private schools in Asmara, following reports that its chairman, 90-year-old Hajj Musa Mohammed Nur, and other members of the school board were arrested after fiercely resisting government efforts to regulate the school. According to a video circulating on social media that appears to show Mr Musa speaking before his arrest, he said that the authorities had demanded that the school, which offers both secular and Islamic education, drop religious teachings, ban the hijab and stop the separation of sexes. The military has reportedly rounded-up of young men overnight, especially in the Akhria area of the city, where the school is located. Anti-government demonstrations in Eritrea are extremely rare because of restrictions imposed by President Isaias Afwerki's government, which has been in power for 26 years. Eritrea does not have a constitution that guarantees the rights of citizens, including the right to protest. The UN Human Rights Commission accuses the Eritrean government of committing human rights violations and crimes against humanity. It strongly denies the allegations, and insists that it treats its citizens well.

These towns fought each other until the women of each clan decided that to preserve peace the four clans must unite. The men accepted, hence the name Arbate Asmera. Arbate Asmara literally means, in the Tigrinya language, "the four (feminine plural) made them unite".[3] Eventually Arbate was dropped and it has been called Asmara which means "they [feminine, thus referring to the women] made them unite". There is still a district called Arbaete Asmara in the Administrations of Asmara. It is now called the Italianized version of the word Asmara. The westernized version of the name is used by a majority of non-Eritreans, while the multilingual inhabitants of Eritrea and neighboring peoples remain loyal to the original pronunciation, Asmera. Asmara is situated in Eritrea's central Maekel Region. It is known for its well-preserved colonial Italian modernist architecture.[2] The city is divided into thirteen districts or administrative areas: Acria, Abbashaul, Edaga Hamus, Arbaete Asmara, Mai Temenai, Paradizo, Sembel, Godaif, Maekel Ketema or Downtown, Tiravolo, Gejeret, Tsetserat and Gheza Banda. Asmara (Tigrinya: ኣስመራ?, Asmera), known locally as Asmera (meaning "They [feminine plural] made them unite" in Tigrinya), is the capital city and largest settlement in Eritrea. Home to a population of just over 1,000,000 inhabitants,[1] it sits at an elevation of 2,325 metres (7,628 ft). The city is located at the tip of an escarpment that is both the northwestern edge of the Eritrean highlands and the Great Rift Valley in neighbouring Ethiopia.

http://www.madote.com/ Here's what tourists are saying about beautiful Asmara, Eritrea. ------ The capital of newly independent Eritrea, Asmara is one of the most beautiful and pleasant cities in the whole of Africa, if not anywhere in the World. Situated at an elevation of 2400 metres above sea-level, its climate is pleasantly cool, but also dry and sunny for much of the year. Architecturally, it is a real feast for the eyes. Having been the centre of Italian colonial efforts in Africa in the first part of the 20th century, Asmara was blessed with beautiful buildings that would only draw praise in Italy as well. Even after the Italians were gone, the city has managed to escape the raveges of third world development, and has amazingly even survived the wars with Ethiopia intact. Current government policies also prevent it from become yet another sprawling, polluted African capital ringed with slums. Not only is Asmara beautiful, clean and pleasantly cool, it is also a very safe and relaxed city, where one can walk around at any time of the day or night without having to worry about safety, or even more minor hassles like beggars. The locals are a very cultured lot who seem to pride themselves on their city's Italian heritage, fondly call it "Little Rome", and cafeterias and pizzerias do a roaring trade along the city's main avenue. And in case you start wondering whether all this comes at a price, you might be delighted to hear that Asmara is also among the cheapest capitals in the continent! Not surprisingly, this is one of the few places that visitors almost invariably fall in love with instantly. http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/2e789/1ebe77/ ======== If there is a country that has ever deserved the overused titles like "hidden gem" or "overlooked jewel", Eritrea is it. The mere name of this country along the Red Sea coast of East Africa tends to provoke blank looks from most people: "Eritrea??? What... err... where is it, actually???" History is partly to blame for sure. Under foreign occupation for centuries, Eritrea only appeared on the maps as an independent country in 1993, when its people have voted for leaving Ethiopia after decades of armed struggle. And ever since then, it has only hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons. So that is why Eritrea is largely unknown to the World, but what makes it a gem? First and foremost, its capital Asmara is the single most beautiful city in Africa, and an ethernal favourite of all those who have been there. Its history as an Italian colonial town has blessed it with an architectural legacy that would draw praise even in Europe. Beautiful buildings apart, the Italians have also left behind their impact on the local culture: cafeterias, pizzerias and fashionably dressed locals (including Africa's most beautiful women) make you feel far removed from the hectic, poverty-stricken and polluted cities of the rest of the continent. To further ensure a pleasant stay, Asmara's climate is as pleasant as it gets, with cool, dry, sunny weather throughout the year. Wishing for something more exotic? Asmara may feel like a piece of Italy, but out in the country you will find an amalgam of African cultures at their best. The highland plateu of southern Eritrea shares the ancient Orthodox Christian traditions of neighbouring Ethiopia, the peoples inhabiting the deserts to the west and along the Red Sea coast exhibit Muslim culture at its most colorful, while animistic, tribal Africa is represented by the Kunama and Nara of the south-west. The landscapes range from lush, cool highlands to the hottest, most desolate deserts anywhere, towns and villages exhibit a curious mixture of traditionally African and Mediterranian influences, and wildlife, while nowhere nearly as abundant as in Kenya or Tanzania, is varied and includes many rare species. Nevertheless, what really gives a lasting impression of Eritrea is her people. Eritreans are among the most educated, dignified and hospitable people I have met anywhere, and the begging, thievery and hassles encountered elsewhere in Africa quickly fade into distant memories here. I visited Eritrea in 2004, as part of a three-month-long tour of North-East Africa, that also took me to neighbouring Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Somaliland. Due to Eritrea's relationship with these neighbours getting here required quite an amount of persistance and determination, but once I arrived, I felt it was all worth it. Eritrea has immediately became my favourite country in Africa, and I can only wish to return for a longer stay in the future. If you are at all thinking about visiting this country, think no more - go! In A Nutshell: "My favourite country in Africa!" http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/2e789/e04/

http://www.madote.com/ Did you know that more tourist (410,000 of them) visit Eritrea each year than all of Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and djibouti combined?? (SOURCE: http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/eco_tou_arr-economy-tourist-arrivals ). Eritrea's Wildlife habitats: Eritrea is home to a RARE mix of inter-bred Indian and African elephants that mixed when the British invaded modern day Eritrea in 1878 with thousands of Indian elephants on a rescue mission of British hostages.(SOURCE: http://www.mcp.com.au/sinus/newsletters/newsletter-11/newsletter-11.html ) In addition to having a rare breed of Elephants, Eritrea is home to lions, greater kudu and Tora hartebeest, vervet monkey, olive baboon, pale or sand fox, common jackal, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, genet, African wild cat, warthog, Soemmering's gazelle, Abyssinian hare and ground squirrel in Gash-Setit Area (Gash Barka Zone); Soemmering's gazelle, baboons, dik-dik, Dorcas gazelle, wild ass, ostrich and other small mammals in Buri Peninsula & the Gheralo-Tio-Badda Triangle; Leopard, bush buck, klipspringer, greater kudu, duiker and warthog in Semenawi & Debubawi Bahri ('Green Belt'); Gazelle in Dissei and Dahlak Kebir, oryx, dugong and green turtle Coastal & Marine Area. Eritrea's Capital city of Asmara: Asmara, the capital of Eritrea, bordering the Red Sea, is referred by many expert travelers as the beautifulest city in Africa and is also home to one of the most important and exciting architectural 'discoveries' of recent years. Built almost entirely in the 1930s and early 40's by Italian and Eritrean workers, Asmara has one of the highest concentrations of modernist architecture anywhere in the world, and has evocatively been described as "the Miami of Africa." Desperate to build quickly, the colonial government of the time allowed radical architectural experimentation that would not have found favour in the more conservative European environment. Asmara therefore became one of the world's prime locations for architectural innovation during the Modern Movement. That this occurred at all is remarkable enough, but that these buildings should have survived in such numbers today makes it one of the finest modernist cities in the World. Eritrea's unique natural features: i. Danakil Depression, 100 metres below sea level with temperatures over 50° Centigrade. ii.The Great Valley Rift, runs through Eritrea. iii.Hot Springs in many locations such as Akwaar, Mai Wui, Gahtelai and Arafayle. iv.The Escarpment providing spectacular views from the highland plateau to the coastal plains. v. Dahlak Archipelago off the Red Sea coast with over 350 islands and unexplored undersea wonders. Eritrea's Marine life: Coral: Healthy coral reefs around 350 islands off the Red Sea coast including the Dahlak Archipelago. Flat reef gardens and cliffs that slope down to the depths of the ocean floor. Varieties ranging from large mounds of brain coral (Porites) to branching Acropora; Varieties of fish: Angelfish - blue and yellow Arabian, the yellowbar and the striped emperor. Butterfly fish - the orangeface, and the brilliant yellow-masked variety with a black face patch, the endemic bannerfish with its elongated dorsal fin. Wrass - brilliant blue-green, blue-striped and other colourful varieties. Parrotfish, groupers, damselfish, animonefish, dascyllus, scissortail sergeant, blue and orange sunrise dotty back, small pipefish, red squirrelfish and cube-like box fish. Larger fish - jacks, snappers, emperors, sweetlips and barracudas. Varieties of crabs under small coral, black, white or red sea cucumbers and snails on the sandy floor beside jellyfish are common. Eritrea's Beaches: Wide sandy beaches and calm seas along the Red Sea coast include Gugusum, Buri Peninsula, Zula Bay, Mersa Gulbub, Mersa Ibrahim and Ras Kuba. Dahlak Archipelago with over 350 islands, Dissei island and Assab Bay islands also offer sandy beaches and ample opportunities for underwater exploration. Eritrea's Bird life: varieties of francolins, sunbird, shrikes, canaries, turacou, serins, starling, green pigeon, oriole, barbet, robin boubou and babblers in Semenawi Bahri; love-birds, wood dove, coucal, warblers, prinia, cisticola, woodpeckers, cameroptera, crombeck, varieties of parrots, warblers, tit and hornbill in Solomuna; coucal, Abyssinian rollers, scimitarbill, flocks of starling, buffalo weavers, varieties of grouse and wagtail in the scrubland and Red Sea coast; stork, herons, crab plovers, larks, sparrow hawk, little green bee-eaters, golden sparrow, speckle-fronted weavers, chatterers and kingfisher in Massawa and environs; francolin, massive thick-billed raven, varieties of pigeon, hornbill, wheaters, turtle dove, wagtail and seed-eaters from Massawa to Asmara.

The Embassy advises US citizens to avoid the downtown area where protests appear to be more prevalent. Streets in the downtown area may be closed, and police continue to maintain a significant presence,” the embassy said. Video footage circulating on social media, purported to be from Asmara, showed people running down streets as rapid gunfire boomed. In a posting on Twitter, Eritrea’s Information Minister Yemane Gebremeskel said a “small demonstration by one school in Asmara” was “dispersed without any casualty”. In an angrily dismissive message, he insisted it was “hardly breaking news” which had claimed no casualties. Eritrean website, Asmarino, said the protest was triggered by government plans to nationalise a private Islamic school, with pro-government site Madote saying it is part of an ambition to “secularise” the country’s education. Contacted by AFP on Wednesday, Eritrea’s representative to the African Union (AU) declined to comment on the protests or the government’s response to them. The government of President Isaias Afewerki maintains tight control over Eritrea, which has no independent media and is ranked second-to-last in terms of press freedom by Reporters Without Borders.

English/Nat The guns were quiet in the Ethiopia-Eritrea conflict on Friday, but tension continued as the escalating clashes threaten to spiral into war. U-S and Rwandan diplomats were shuttling between the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa and the Eritrean capital Asmara to try to help resolve the conflict. In the Eritrean capital, Asmara, women marched and prayed for peace while people queued outside the offices of Eritrean airlines trying to leave the country. Eritrean women prayed and chanted to peace on the streets of the Eritrean capital of Asmara on Friday. Clashes on the Eritrea-Ethiopia border broke out on May 6 when Ethiopia accused Eritrea of occupying a swath of land along their border. The two sides differ over where Italy, the former colonial power, drew the border. Eritrean forces fought a secessionist rebellion against Ethiopia for 30 years. They realised their aims in 1993, two years after helping Ethiopian rebels under Zenawi overthrow the Addis Ababa government. Neither side reported new clashes on Friday. But the Ethiopian army poured reinforcements into the front lines south of Zala Ambessa on Friday -- ten days after Eritreans captured the town. Eritreans on the front-line were expecting retaliatory attacks after Eritrean helicopters and planes bombed the Ethiopian border town of Adigrat on Thursday, killing four civilians and wounding 30. Meanwhile, people queued up outside the Eritrean airlines offices in Asmara, trying to get out. A planeload of 125 foreigners were evacuated from Asmara on Friday -- 78 of them were Filipinos, the rest Britons, South Africans, Australians and Croatians. But many others have been unable to leave. This man lives in Germany and was visiting his family in Eritrea when the clashes started. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The situation makes me nervous, you know. Lots of people, they have work there. They want to go but they don't have a chance. That's why they are nervous." SUPER CAPTION: Mensur Mohamed, Eritrean who lives in Germany A U-S negotiating team declined comment upon their arrival in Asmara on Friday. Rwandan Vice President Paul Kagame followed and left early in the evening, according to the Eritrean presidential spokesman. There was no official comment on Kagame's quick visit.

English/Nat Ethiopian warplanes bombed a combined military-civilian airport as well as the outskirts of the Eritrean capital for a second day running on Saturday, escalating a border dispute between the two Horn of Africa nations. But there were scenes of joy and impromptu celebrations across the capital - Asmara - on Friday when the Eritrean government said it had shot down one Ethiopian MiG fighter-bomber. But for the foreigners trying to flee, it was a different story. Several of the Ethiopian bombs struck the civilian part of the airport on Saturday, igniting fires as people were trying to leave the country. Some of the those who did manage to fly to Frankfurt, in Germany, aboard a U-S chartered plane, spoke of the confusion in Asmara as violence escalates. A spontaneous outburst of national pride on the streets of the capital - Asmara. When the news filtered through on Friday that Eritrean government forces had shot down an Ethiopian plane, there were celebrations on almost every street corner. This was despite the fact that Ethiopian warplanes bombed a combined military-civilian airport as well as the outskirts of the Eritrean capital. The attacks continued on Saturday as well. Initial reports said two Ethiopian MiGs had been shot down Friday, but Eritrea later said only one had been hit and the pilot captured. Even young boys were proud of their country's achievement. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Ready, we are always ready." SUPER CAPTION: Celebrating youth Eritrea and Ethiopia, among the world's poorest nations, are at odds over at least six areas along their common border, which was traced by Italy after it conquered Eritrea in 1885. Eritrea gained its independence from Ethiopia in 1993, but the border disputes have lingered on. One volunteer worker boarding a U-S chartered plane at Asmara airport said it was very difficult getting information about what was happening. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The border keeps getting pushed up. War has been declared. I don't know.. a bunch of rumours. You hear bits and pieces." SUPER CAPTION: Aaron Greenberg, U-S Peace Corps Volunteer Although this charter flight got away safely on Friday, the following day, several bombs struck the civilian part of the complex, setting off fires as more foreigners were trying to leave the country. When the charter flight arrived in Germany, the evacuees said they had very little warning that they had to leave. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Some people have come with almost nothing and were evacuated at 10 minutes' notice. So people have, you know, left photographs and things that they valued very highly. But it wasn't - it was on the cards for two days." SUPER CAPTION: Edward Winter, teacher Others with young children were terrified as the bombing started. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We were scared. We lived very close to the airport and we hadn't expected anything like that. It was very surprising." SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop Many expressed regret that they were forced to leave their jobs and the Eritrean people with whom they lived and worked because of the violence. Because of the airport attacks, Britain and Germany were having difficulty trying to send aircraft to evacuate their citizens from Eritrea. But an Italian foreign ministry spokesman said on Saturday that Ethiopia has agreed to stop attacks on the airport for 13 hours so more foreigners can safely get out.
