Bernos waxes lyrical about the joys of drinking mixed Coca-Cola in Addis Ababa:
Even yet'eb'er'za Coka had its satisfaction. Whether mixed with water or not I didn't care!! For a long time after coming to the states I still used to water down my Coke.
It took a while to get used to seeing people topping up a glass of Coke with Ambo (fizzy water) or Highland (bottled water). Then, two weeks ago, I was at a friend's house and he offered me a drink – half Coke, half Axumit red wine.
It wasn't quite as bad as it sounds. But where did this habit come from?
