Driving in Addis


Meskel Square, Addis Ababa

Been there!  Did that!

Watch the Pedestrians!



About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    This was like ‘Wacky Races’, with real cars and people. It’s a wonder anyone gets home unscathed!
    Best wishes, Pete.
