Timket celebrations 2017, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

I worked in Ethiopia for four years, from 2012 to 2017, first as a volunteer professor of biochemistry, then as an expatriate Associate Professor of Medical Biochemistry in Addis Ababa University Medical School. I travelled to many areas of Ethiopia and even lived for several weeks in the homes of Ethiopians in the countryside. Ethiopia’s beauty, traditions and cultures, as well as the good character of its people, interact in a complex way with the poverty, hardships and political oppression that many Ethiopians suffer. This site explores my experiences, thoughts and opinions of Ethiopia and Ethiopians based on those four amazing years there.
