Often people immediately think of hot and humid climates when talking about Africa. While Ethiopia has some of the hottest places on earth such as in the Danakil Depression, it also has high elevations like Ras Dashen at over 14,000 feet above sea level where it snows and gets very cold. The elevation makes all the difference. In the capital Addis Ababa, it is about 8,000 feet and the climate is pleasant and temperate. The mean annual temperature in Addis is 60 degrees F. Temperature variations occur from rainy to dry seasons.
