While Bryon is tilling the garden, I am nearly on the other side of the world. Instead of picking up my regular trusty camera and walking down past the chickens and apple trees I snap what whizzes past in the chaos that is daily life in Ethiopia’s capital with a pocket Point & Shoot. The first few days it looks like this–a jumble of cars, tin shacks, and people.My driver honks to warn oncoming jaywalkers (one has a package perched on his head).How do you handle the load? Any way that works.Apparently there are no height restrictions on moving goods by truck.From where I sat (trapped in a van), it was difficult to photograph people as they went about their business. Local women cover their hair, and sometimes their faces. Once when I ventured into the nearby market, one of the hotel staff offered to show me where to buy cheaper souvenirs. Perhaps he was only trying to be friendly, but I was alone and it made me uneasy.Near the souvenir market. Dogs are part of the neighborhood.Addis is changing. A lot of construction is underway: shopping malls, luxury highrises, office buildings.A local grocery.Barricades separate construction sites from the traffic.Yesterday we were running late, so our driver took a shortcut … … through a construction zone.Metal shacks with satellite dishes: that pretty much sums up the contradictions.
