I have been thinking about music and how without realizing, it is a part of our everyday lives. Whether it’s gospel, plain old regular music, birds chirping or just whistling we all have some music in our lives.

I am in Mauritius this week and have been very excited to discover a new side of the continent that I had never seen before.  Although it is a few hours flight, a total of 6 hours from Addis, going there from Addis Ababa costs just as much as going to the US.

I had a conversation about higher education and careers with law students recently and was reminded of the difficulties one faces in getting higher degrees in Ethiopia.
