As a country, Eritrea is fascinating. It has a large mix of different ethnic groups all blended together in this small country. There is so much to see including: the art deco city of Asmara, the colonial styled cinemas and cafes are found all along the main boulevards. The Aksumite Ruins are a collection of archaeological sites dating from the 10th Century and many people put these ruins in the same class as those found in Persia and Rome. Eritrea received it’s name at the start of the Italian Colonization in 1890. Agriculture is the bedrock of the Eritrean economy; especially since 75% of the population live in rural areas and they depend on subsistence agriculture. The class and caste system in Eritrea is very much practiced and is important to the natives. However, in the rural areas most people are poor and class distinction rarely is practiced there. Eritreans are hardworking people and they show a great responsibility to their elders. Public affection between opposite sexes is frowned upon although it is commonplace to see two males holding hands when walking; purely as a sign of friendship.
Asmara the capita city, started its journey as a collection of small villages but was developed into a city by the Italians. Inside the city there are so many places to see and much to do.
