The others had two huge local bread platters with a variety of spicy sauces, while I opted for the breaded fish….

He responded with a blank stare: E-th-i? “Ethiopia” I said again. He tried again and didn’t get it. I repeated slowly E-thi-o-pi-a. He repeated slowly. “Addis I know” he said “but not country.” Then he asked what time it was in Addis. I showed him my watch, but he looked not at the time ...
