Hoping for some insight from anybody who's been to or lived in Ethiopia. I just booked a ticket for 3 weeks in August and am planning on wandering around, hitting up lovely bars and renting a car, although not necessarily in that order. Besides that I'm not sure how I should prioritize my time.

When I'm driving, will I get stopped at random checkpoints to pay fines/bribes to traffic cops? Also, what are the best things to prioritize visiting that are within driving distance of Addis?

I've also heard that when going from Addis to a far flung city, most normal people fly instead of drive. How pricey are flights to other cities like Gondar or Axum, etc.? Could I really do the 9 hour (according to google maps) drive from Addis to Gondar? Is it a normal road or is it a one lane potholed track that will in reality take 20 hours?

Also, has anyone done any brewery visits?
