I write from my hotel in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, after spending a day in Bishoftu. Bishoftu is a beautiful town 50 miles south of Addis Ababa, known for it’s famous lakes and also as a site of annual Oromo cultural celebration called Irreecha.
It’s been a few weeks since I shared my last blog and I’m writing now from the beautiful and peaceful terrain of Dembi Dollo. I hope you all enjoyed coming along with me as I relived my experiences in Arsi and Sidamo.

Hello everyone from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It's the year 2004 here and the weather is so beautiful. My name is Nabila Aliye; I arrived in Ethiopia on a family vacation on Jan. 7, a warm Christmas day in Addis, which threw me off at first since I’ve only known one X-mas all my life.
It’s been a couple of weeks since my last blog and I’m really excited to share with you what I’ve been doing since then. I should mention that I have written the piece about the healthcare system but I won’t post it until I return to the U.S.
I know it’s only been a few days since my last blog but I wanted to share some pretty heartwarming experiences I’ve had over the last two days.
I hope you enjoyed the lighter side of life in Ethiopia which I highlighted in my last entry.
