The Land of Milk and Honey
My daughter is once again going through a phase of intense fascination with all things Ethiopian. She is often realistic: "In Addis Ababa, they had animals everywhere." Yes, that's true, and she's seen it in pictures and video. "In Addis Ababa, they have the most beautiful people in the world" and, well, that could certainly seem objectively true. But this one was a bit odd: "In Addis Ababa, they have nicer showers. The shower door doesn't slam."
