Visited the Kechene Women Potters collective in the old part of Addis where houses are still made from mud. Gete makes and hand paints the pottery here. The women who work here share the profits.

Met these two men outside the Prime Minister’s office in Addis. They were kind enough to pose for a pic.

This is kitfo - an Ethiopian dish of raw beef mixed with niter kibbeh, served with a cheese that’s something in between cottage cheese and feta, and minced mushrooms. It’s eaten cold from a warm bowl and taken with injera.

Thanks Daniel, for inviting me into your home for a traditional meal with your family.

Holy Trinity Cathedral, aka Selassie church, in Addis, where the murdered engineer of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam was buried on Sunday. Sylvia Pankhurst and her son, who both lived in Ethiopia, are also buried here. But that’s another story (literally).

Here’s probably where some of your shoes are made. Yesterday I visited the Huajian Shoe City in Ethiopia. Over 7,000 people work here and most of them are Ethiopian. The plan is for this huge complex to turn into a city, with a solar panel workshop, residential towers etc. Ethiopia wants to attract manufacturing companies so it can industrialise, but workers here were v unhappy with their low wages.

I could eat this every day. Yetsom beyaynetu: a platter of vegetarian food eaten after sunset during fasting periods, featuring yellow split pea stew, gomen, beets, shiro wat, miser wat, potato and carrot stew, on the injera sour dough bread. No 🍴 necessary.
