A cousin of mine who came for a brief visit from abroad once said that a safe return home from a day spent out in Addis Ababa is yet another day survived from the dangers that corner the streets of the city.

When I grow up

When I grow up, I want to be a doctor! When I grow up, I want to be a pilot! I am sure many of us Ethiopians were asked the question ‘What would you like to be when you grow up?’ during our childhoods. Somehow, the only professions most of us knew of were medicine and piloting.

To give or not to give

Should I or should I not give money to beggars? That is the question that pesters my mind as I walk the streets of Addis every day.
