Met Opera House

This was taken earlier this year when it was still cold outside. I was on my way to see Swan Lake.  Beautiful.

Addis Ababa, February 2011

I was in Addis in February and my colleagues took me here for lunch.  In case you can’t read the sign, it’s for a restaurant, which serves only kitfo. Kitfo is a traditional dish of minced beef marinated in chili powder and clarified butter. You order it like steak–raw, medium or well-done.  Guess what I had.


These are used plastic bottles for sale.


Mmmm, I can still taste this macchiato from Cafe Raymundo on Bole Road.  One of my favorite things about Ethiopia.  You can find great coffee everywhere.

Staircase, MoMA

I love going to the MoMA.  It’s one of my favorite museums.  I discovered Modigliani here.  If you haven’t seen one of his paintings, go here!
