Welcome Ethiopia!

This morning it is my privilege to welcome Ethiopia to Texasbooklover. Enkuan dehna metu!

Fun facts:

Ethiopia is the country where coffee was first discovered. It was first noticed by a shepherd named Kaldi, whose goats became so spirited after eating berries from a certain tree that they wouldn't sleep at night. The word coffee itself is considered borrowed from the southern Ethiopian lands of Kaffa.

Addis Ababa, the capital, is the highest city in Africa at 8,200 feet.
