I really enjoyed your book. I lived in Ethiopia for 15 months and your photos brought back lots of lovely memories. I thought your mixed up photos of the churches were particularly beautiful and I liked the ones in Merkato. Was the photo on the last page taken between Tele and Hiya Hulet? It looked like it. Thanks for sharing anyway.

You are still painting and creating art, but this time its behind your camera and computer. I know this will inspire many and stir up old memories for those who have lived in great Addis. When I grow up, I want to take photos just like you ;).
