The place name for the heart of Addis Ababa is Arada. The root word Arada is an Amharic word meaning a sloppy place that drives everyone to valley. And on this Arada for many years, even for more than five hundred years there is always a market known as Arada Gebeya. The market was usually on Saturdays. And the commodities come from different part of Ethiopia : like salt from Tigrai, lion and tiger skin from Welega, perfume and spices from Harar, fine horses from Wollo, food item and honey from Gojam, coffee and elephant task from Kaffa, lion skin and buluko from Gamo Gofa, hand written prayer books from Gondar, selected milk cows from Arsi, etc. And the market was mostly open, in the morning it was beautiful and in the evening it was dirty with dogs in the evening and hyenas fighting throughout the night over what is left, making it an easier job for the next week cleaners.
