Universal Truths

Hi all,
I know that I have been off of this for a long time, but have a couple of universal truths to add, care of a pair of lovely wouth africans who agreed to take care of me while traveling in ethiopia in exchange for french toast, banana pancakes and ratatouille cooked on the gas stove on the door hinge of their truck. thanks boys...
#13: no matter where you go, elton john got there before you.
#14: death
#15: ice cream, awesome no matter where you are
#16: damn flies and fucking mosquitoes
To these, i want to add my own, something that had been propounded for me upon a return to central america this month. Life goes on after we leave. One returns and the same people are selling things on the same street corner. seasons change, things appear different, but life is always going on. cliche and obvious, but i don't know, it's struck me over and over again these past days, so bear with me...

Day-nan-ash Hilary,

This is Petros (Peter Kassa). I hope I got it right when i try to say hello in Amheric.

I've enjoyed reading your blog. I see the ethiopians have treated well...

If you have time, take a roadtrip with friends to Eritrea...I wish i could be there to host, but i'm stuck in New York City mastering spreadsheets and the "copy-and-paste" method.

If you plan to be in NYC anytime soon, email me at pkassa@gmail. Maybe we can get together with Kris and Jackie.

In any case, enjoy the rest of your time there. And bring back some beans!

Petros
