Join Chef Yohanes on a tour of the old Piazza (Piassa) area of Addis Ababa; nothing to do with cooking though, he's looking at the historical buildings.
This is from his 2019 Addis Guaro TV series for Kana TV, and the episode has been given English subtitles.
Yohanis Gebreyesus Hailemariam, aka Chef Yohanis, explores some of the old landmarks in the Piazza area. Watch via the Kana TV YouTube Channel (40 mins).

There are lots of interesting snippets of information in the programme, though I'm not sure I believe them all! Certainly the old Central Statistical Agency building used to be the Bank of Abyssinia (their first branch), and not Alfred [Ilg]'s house as suggested.

Heritage Watch Ethiopia are currently trying to save Alfred Ilg's house from further damage, you can download an interesting leaflet on the project.
