Monday, February 1, 2010 | Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

At least this internet cafe in Bahir Dar had some nice flowers outside, which I could look at while waiting for my email to load.
Remember the dial-up noise computers used to make? Here in Ethiopia, they still do:
"... Connections in Ethiopia are among the worst on the continent. It can easily take an hour to download one simple, two line e-mail. And that's in Addis! To avoid frustration it's better to assume that while in Ethiopia you will not be able to get online." -Lonely Planet: Ethiopia, page 250
Truer words were never spoken. Just wish I'd read them before I arrived!

No Interwebs in Ethiopia? Bummer.
