    I enjoyed looking this photo journal, so much randomness yet captivating!

    Hey ..great pics!

    Just to say ..is that a hijab or a burqa? and was the “little too much flesh” comment necessary?

    These are really beautiful! thanks Aref, I hope you will make it a habit:)
    on a different note I heard the Britsh council library is going to be closed it is true?

    Nice pictures Arefe. Thanks for sharing.

    But here is what you do fro next time. Ask your readers to put caption to the pictures.

    For example, the kid at the pool table looks like he is saying “Hey Ronadinho, let’s see your talent here on the pool table!”

    The girl with the tattoo looks like she is saying ” Warning: if you can tame this scorpion, you can tame me too”

    The tej bet guy is saying “Minew jal? sew hulu yet hede? Yihe Gisila cigara new meselegn, mekeyer alebign”

    The boutique on the wheel chair should say: “I hope they didn’t forget the guy in the chair before they opened the shop”

    And the job seekers “OK OK here is the camera guy, everyone pretend like you are reading the paper”.

    Love it Arefe!! You should do more of these as well. You have IT. (Whatever that IT is!!) The pictures are random and up to date. You don’t really find them anywhere. May be at Flicker but it takes too much time to browse and find those pictures updated and that we addis ababians have connection. SO Arefe you should do this more often.

    You know, it’s no shame to take a break when you have nothing to wirte about. A bunch of photos won’t make a blog.

    You don’t have to comment as such ”displays a little too much flesh and her tattoo”, after posting such a random pic of somebody. That is too far and not right.

    you should simply say ” gilrl from olmpai”

  15. March 31, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Thanks all.
    Alem, about the British council.Yeah, I read something about the office moving to new location and the library being transferred to National archive library.I dont’ know what that means.
    I just hope someone in the know could enlighten us here.
