Snapshots from Ethiopia: Waking at 5:30 to the summons to prayer from the mosque next door. Exotic, lush gardens of the Ghion Hotel in Addis Ababa, their air of neglect, their faded glory, only adding to their charm. Manchester United decals on taxis (that really hurts; why not Newcastle United?) Solitary boy squatting by a rain filled, muddy hole, hand poised to catch – frogs? On the road – old trucks belching exhaust, ancient single decker buses, minivan taxis, 3-wheel taxis (always blue), teeming crowds, gorgeous children, colourful robes of women, mud, potholes, cows, goats, donkeys.
