K is for “Konjo”

K is for Konjo

There are a few Amharic words I remember from my first visit to Ethiopia in 2009. I remember how to say thank you. I remember hello and goodbye. Of course, there’s also injera, berbere, and tibs. I didn’t really learn a lot of Amharic words that first time around. I definitely learned more during my most recent trips. But there’s one word that has stuck with me since I first heard it in 2009.

“Konjo.”

Beautiful.

There is a lot about Ethiopia that isĀ Konjo. Instead of wasting words trying to describe its beauty, I’ll just share a few photos. They’re supposed to be worth a thousand words each. Right?
