Back to Europe

I was in Ethiopia for a few days, and shocked to hear how prices have gotten so very expensive. Teff, which is basic food most Ethiopians consume is over 5ETB per kilo (from 2 or 3ETB not long ago); Berbere is over 4ETB per kilo (from 1ETB), and goes on like that.

I don’t know how people are surviving. For someone who makes 500ETB per month, how is it possible to spend 20 or 30ETB per day just on food and still be able to live. It is just with God’s grace that people are managing in a such tough circumstance.
