Nope. The script you see in the banner over my head is used in only one country in the world. Here's some local vegetation:

Close, but in Kenya they use the Roman alphabet.

Right you are! I just  spent a week in and around Awassa, on an exploratory mission aimed at helping the university there start a new master's program. No real trail adventures to report, but if the project goes through I will return and hope to do some hiking in the Bale and Simien mountains.

Have a coffee for me BigRed! And most certainly do not have an injera for me. I know people seem to love that stuff, but it tastes like a soggy bath-mat to me!

I know what you mean, but I found injera more palatable than the rubbery bread made from enset, another local specialty.

But the coffee is excellent! We brought back two kilos of unroasted coffee beans, now have to find an air popper (not common here) as that seems to be a preferred roasting method.

What's your connection to Ethiopia? Peace Corps?
