About Eritrea

Eritrea, located in the Horn of Africa, shares borders with Sudan to the west, Ethiopia to the south, Djibouti to the southeast, and the northeast and eastern parts of the country have extensive coastlines along the Red Sea. Eritrea's history dates back to the prehistoric era, later it was under the rule of the Kingdom of Aksum and the Kingdom of Ethiopia, and then it was under Italian and British administration. In 1950, Eritrea was federated with Ethiopia, and in 1993, it declared its independence and gained international recognition. Asmara is the capital and serves as a commercial center due to being the largest city. Other significant cities include Massawa, Tessene, and Assab.
Eritrea has a population of approximately 3.6 million, and the official currency is Ethiopian Birr. Although there is no official language of the nation, nine languages are spoken by nine ethnic groups Tigre, Tigrinya, Kunama, Nara, Afar, Saho, Beja, Bilen, and Arabic. Tigrinya, Arabic, and English serve as working languages, while Italian is spoken as well.
Agriculture and mining are the primary sources of income in the country, with the majority of the population residing in rural areas. The main exports from Eritrea include cattle, textiles, and consumer products and the industry is concentrated in the capital, Asmara.
Eritrea has a tropical monsoon climate that is somewhat milder and receives more rainfall compared to Ethiopia.

From June to September, temperatures in the country can soar up to 40 degrees. Geographically, Eritrea falls within the subequatorial and tropical climate zones, resulting in a highly variable climate.
