Lunch at the Greek club
Had lunch the other day with TED attendee Ted Kidane (try saying that quickly) and his wife at the Greek Club.
We were in a post-conference African Renaissance high. So the conversation turned naturally to trying to imagine what Ethiopia would be like without poverty. It was short conversation as the answer was obvious. The climate, the landscape, the endless variety, the cultures stretching back into time, the food, the coffee, Haile Gebrselassie. It would be paradise on earth.
Maybe those Rastas in Shashamane are on to something.
