Thank-you Heather

Here's a photo of me giving a speech in Amharic--the second speech I've made in the language. It appears from the photo, taken by Heather (there's a link to her blog at left), that either the content of the speech or my brutal pronounciation is particularly hilarious. All this to say that I think it's pretty indicative of something...
Coming up this week is a long version (sorry Julie!) of an interview I did with Quantic. Sure, I may have forced him to talk a little excessively about Ethiopia, but those who know me, you gots to know I've got a little thing for that country and any one who happens to have visted there. Any opportunity to talk about it...gawd, if this blog is any indication, I should perhaps keep my flaming mouth shut. You'll again witness this particular problem I have probably on Thursday or Friday. Until such time, buy Quantic's new album, or any of his albums, or Mulatu Astetke's albums. They're all quite great.

So pleased to rate not only a mention but a link! I've also realized that with your Amheric experience and fluency you could be prime recruitment candidate for CIA. Watch out on upcoming trip for any mysterious men/women/children sidling up to you and slipping a piece of paper covered in code....unless it is signed 'issa'.
