The irony of this article (p.64-65), which I wrote for Selamta magazine, getting published in the middle of Abiy tsom season is not lost on me. Who said the Man Upstairs doesn’t have a sense of humour? I guess I’ll just consider it as something to hold me over until April 12.
Having grown up with a steady supply of Selamta magazines, which my father always brought for me from his numerous travel trips abroad no matter where in the world we were living, it’s a bit loopy but also very gratifying to see my own name in the byline.
Here’s hoping that there’s more to come.
