When you say the word Indiana, I would wager that there are a few words that most Americans think of: corn, racecars, farming, basketball. Maybe the Colts and/or the Pacers. I’m sure there are other words that are commonly associated with my Hoosier homeland.
While I was in Addis, our guide asked us what Americans think of when they think of Ethiopia. I threw out some ideas, but I don’t really know how accurate they are. I know what I think of when I think of Ethiopia. But I guess I’m not your average American when it comes to this question.
So I ask you, oh Reader, this same question:
What do you think of when you hear of Ethiopia?
This is not a trick question. I would appreciate it if you’re as honest as possible. You will not be ridiculed (unless there’s hate speech involved. But I don’t expect that from any of you). I genuinely want to know. What comes to mind when you think of Ethiopia?
Please leave your answers in the comments or on the facebook page. Thanks!
