Peter Langer, B.A., B.Sc., M.A. is one of Canada’s leading travel photographers. His photographs have appeared worldwide and have been exhibited in several continents. He is also an award-winning travel writer and is actively engaged in the international educational, arts and travel & tourism communities.

Mr. Langer has travelled to 180 countries and territories and has just returned from Eritrea with Ethiopian Airlines Canada. He most recently photographed Asmara, the capital of Eritrea, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its unique Modernist Italian architecture.

“Asmara features brilliant Art Deco architecture, excellent Italian coffee and the most wonderful gelato, I have had in a while. The people are soft-spoken, kind and generous. Eritrea also feels very much like the South America in the 1960s, where I grew up, and for me it also was like a journey back in time to the happy days of my childhood.” said Langer.

Ethiopian Airlines flies to Asmara twice daily from Addis Ababa with excellent connections to Toronto.

Below are just a few  photos Mr. Langer has taken while  in Asmara.
