I am in the middle of the first on-line course P2V and came across your blog. Ethiopia was one of my preferred locations for a placement, so I am especially interested in case my wish comes true. I have been to Addis for a couple of weeks and enjoyed that enormously. I worked for the British council and my colleagues there were/are great people. In fact, you share your surname with my then boss and you look a bit like her too, you’re not by any chance related to Yvonne?
Thanks for contacting me. I am Canadian in fact and not familiar with anyone at the British Council; perhaps way back in time I am a distant relative!
Good luck with your work and feel free to forward a link to my blog to others who may be interested in Ethiopia. It is a wonderful place because of the great people.
So sorry to be slow to get back to you. Yes it seems I cannot access any Blogspot blogs for some unknown reason…I have tried often when I get your emails about new posts but they just go round and round and v]never open up. Hope you and Gina are well. I miss keeping up with you both!
I wanted to say thank you for writing such a entertaining and informative blog.
My husband and I are travelling to Ethiopia from the BC interior in a couple of weeks with our daughters who were born and lived the first 6 years of their lives there. We’ve really enjoyed your blog and it’s been invaluable for getting them back into the Ethio mindset and reminding them of what life there is like.
I very much enjoy your blogs. Thank you so much for making your adventures available to all and for been so skilled at making them fun to read. I loved the voting episode and the making of the wot step by step was great. Looking at the photos you have uploaded, there sure are a lot of friendly people in Ethiopia and you seem to have made a wonderful impression on them.

Hey Marian really love the work you did. I’m a graduate student and I’ll be working on higher education gender policies there in Addis Ababa this summer, would love to talk to connect with you on this subject if you have an email I can contact you with.
I just spent a few enjoyable hours at the Muimul Bakery reading your Spider Webs Unite book at Wyni’s recommendation. I am just finishing 6 months with MSF in Tigray working with Eritrean refugees. Your photos are awesome and reading your blogs confirms how much I too have fallen in love with Ethiopia!
Thanks for such an informative and delightful read,
Dear Marian hope that you are doing great. My name is Begosew Delele, I was part of the ICS programme back four years ago. I would be more than blessed and grateful, if you could share me your book.
P.S please keep up the good work.
