Going back to Ethiopia

I’m back over to Ethiopia in a less than 4 weeks with my son Ben to film a few projects near Debre Markos, and also down south in the Kaffe region. Ben is in Transition Year and it’ll be his first trip to sub Saharan Africa. A great way to spend two weeks from TY, and a great way to broaden your world view.

I love these moments with my boy, just Hugo, me & the dog having a nice stroll up here

I’ve been listening a lot recently to My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless which, depending on how you measure it, is twenty years old this year. This abstract, noodling record is beloved of shoegazers the world over and I’m still enjoying it after all this time. It suits my current mood, somewhat introspective and a bit concerned about what the immediate future holds. I can’t assimilate how and why our situation has crashed so catastrophically and quickly – it’s time to reassess and figure out what’s next.
