comment Day trips from Addis Ababa with public transport. Is it possible?
Taxis and mini-vans are sort of public transport. In any case taxis are limited to the city perimeter. Mini-vans follow specific routes. It's not easy at all to find where they go to and the departure points. This difficulty happens for many reason, of them being the different alphabet. One of the issues related with the day trips is not so much going but returning. Transport, specially from remote places, is very erratic.

comment Trekking near Addis Ababa, where can one do it?
Been there! Don't expect much either in terms of nature or trekking. It's all Eucaliptus wich is not an endemic species. Cars go all the way up. Its still a nice exercice to walk up hill. The view over the city is quite amazing. You can also find some traditional places and see the woman transporting wood (quite hard work!!)

comment What is the average & max temperature of an airplane cargo hold?
:) Mark I know the engines are far. That doesn't mean the cooling system is. If there is such an equivalent to 4 strong engines as a radiator it can be placed somewhere else for some reason. It seems not. Also if such cooling systems existed, while still on ground, where temperatures are much higher, that could lead to a peak temperature inside.

comment What is the average & max temperature of an airplane cargo hold?
Mark thank you. My main concern would be that temperature inside the plain cargo area is too high. I don't exactly know how jet propulsion works but it should need cooling like any other engine. Maybe some of that heat is dissipated in a way that can warm those areas. Chocolate is sensitive starting around ~37C which is not that high.
