We all have heared how things are getting expensive in Addis. This exhange with a close friend says it all. I wrote what follows a couple of weeks ago (names edited , of course)

Hey,
 
Great.. I am glad that at least one of my suggessions made it to the list. Guess wht?  …. wrote me saying congrats on the graduation. 
 
Otherwise, thanks for sending the attachment. Will let you know if sth new comes up. There are a lot of stories I need to  tell you when I get back: starting from my last evening in Addis.
 
Save your money for Quanta firfir and a bottle of red wine
 
Hugs and love
 
                    
 
The following is the email I got a few weeks later
Hi,
Please do not raise your expectaions about saving money for quanta firfiir and red wine! I can asssure you that in today’s Ethiopia red wine sounds like red terror hence I advise to bring it with you before you leave the duty free shop. I do not know what to say about the quantta but if possible there may be quanta from the USA that your beloved mother would have sent earlier. I hope this is nice yep!
We will discuss ….as the moment comes.

Lots of thoughts that need to be said. Most of the time I just get too lazy to write them down. Ever met people who would say the things you wanna say much better than you ever would?  I have. One of those guys for me is the late George Carlin. Enjoy this one.
