It is where the African Union is headquartered and where its predecessor the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) was established.

Addis Ababa is therefore often referred to as"the political capital of Africa" for its historical, diplomatic and political significance for the continent. The town lies a few miles west of the East African Rift which divides Ethiopia into 2, involving the Nubian Plate and the Somali Plate. The city is surrounded by the Special Zone of Oromia and inhabited by people from different areas of Ethiopia. It is home to Addis Ababa University.

Tofino is a district of approximately 1,932 residents on the west coast of Vancouver Island in the Canadian province of British Columbia. The district is located at the western terminus of Highway 4 on the tip of the Esowista Peninsula at the southern edge of Clayoquot Sound. A popular tourist destination in the summer, Tofino's population swells to many times its winter size. It attracts surfers, hikers, nature lovers, bird watchers, campers, whale watchers, fishers, or anyone just looking to be close to nature.



In the winter, it is not as bustling, although many people visit Tofino and the West Coast to watch storms on the water. Close to Tofino is Long Beach, a scenic and popular year-round destination, at the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. With its natural hot springs, Maquinna Marine Provincial Park is a popular day-trip destination for tourists. Reachable by boat or floatplane, the park is located about 45 kilometres (28 mi) north of Tofino.
