Great macondo 2020-02-05 2:12

Hi Steve.
Superb photo, the child dwarfed by the very solid looking (daubed, rendered?) walls and massive rock. The very colourful scene looks very peaceful. Also interesting to me because I recently bought a kilogram of Harar coffee beans - I've had them once before - which are very hard to get in Australia and apparently increasingly difficult to grow in the Harar district. Here's some information from the coffee dealer I get them from:
They usually sell out pretty quickly as only small quantities are available. I've also had Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee, also very nice.
Anyway, excellent photo, superbly framed.

Default To macondo: walls and coffee

Hi Andrew, house construction in Ethiopia varies from regions to regions, I guess, depending on the available materials. Some places it is stick and mud, others stone. In Harar I think the houses are stone with a mud render, painted all different colours. Coffee is present everywhere. To drink that is (roasted, ground, brewed right in front of you by the street vendor with a charcoal stove) I didn't see much growing, perhaps the plantations are not adjacent to roads. cheers, Steve
