A few visuals

This is what I wake up to each morning. On a good day, the gentle light is accompanied by the soothing Muslim call to prayer. (According to the 2007 census, Ethiopia is 62.8% Christian and 33.9% Muslim.) On a bad day, well…. let’s just say the dogs in the neighborhood don’t exactly get along very well.

My temporary lodging at Cozy Place. Definitely cozy.

Many a night has been spent here around the table sharing brews and good conversation. The owner, Dawit, is a kind-hearted 30 year-old who is pursuing is passion in music, despite his royal heritage and family disapproval. This is his seventh year operating Cozy Place and he recently expanded the hostel to a second location.

My morning commute. This is the easy part of it.


Given the ongoing construction all over the city, many businesses have sprung up to accommodate for the labor force. This lady camps out by one such site and prepares food and drink for the workers.
