Selamnachu (hello everyone)

November 9, 2010

So, after three months of intermittent internet, multiple jobs, frequent power cuts, and a lot of bad excuses, I’ve finally started the process of writing down all the thoughts and experiences that have been crowding my head since I came to Addis. I have a horrible feeling that composing these into some sort of coherent series of blogposts will be like trying to funnel a river through a straw, but it has to be done – for the love of writing, for the alarming poorness of my memory, for teasing out the things that writing alone can tease out, and for keeping you informed (friends and family, uh, sorry about that…). 

Oh, and of course as an aspiring journalist/writer a little bit of practice/self-promotion is definitely no bad thing.

So – I hope that you read this blog but, more importantly, I hope that you like what you read.

(PS typically, I’m going to the field tomorrow (first time! omg yay etc), but will try and update as soon as possible.)
