I had to go all the way to Rwanda (online) to find EthiopiaLives.net - a great blog of photos of everyday Ethiopian life. The link came via On Safari with El Jorgito another great blog by George Conard, a tech expert who used to work for Microsoft in Seattle and has now moved to Kigali to set up a development project involving phones - I think that is right.
According to the Ethiopia Lives blurb:
Nineteen Ethiopians turn their cameras onto their own lives and invite you to share their very personal perspectives. From diverse backgrounds and different parts of the country, their photographs give a rare insight into life in Ethiopia now. They will continue to post new photographs regularly until the end of 2005, so please check the site regularly.
I presume the point is to provide an alternative to the persistent "Live Aid" image of the country. Seems a shame that is is all going to be over in December.
