I started the Ferenge Addis Blog with the same motivation that rules most of my life: laziness. I was too lazy to type the same e-mails to both Mom and Dad and a couple other people I correspond with. I never guessed that 100 people a day would find some reason to visit my blog, or that I would be linked from places like Ethiopian Adoption blogs, or the blog of a real journalist, Andrew Havens of the Meskel Square blog (now in Sudan).
Having moved back to the US a couple of weeks ago, I'm sad to now say goodbye to the FAB. I've made some friends through contacts made here. And the comments sections has provided no end of entertainment.
I've started a new blog, the "Oh, Sorry, I'm new in DC" blog, which will serve the original intention of the FAB (Hi Mom, Hi Dad). Thanks to everyone who stopped here and especially those who commented. I'll be back in Addis from time to time. Best wishes and best of luck.
