Melcome Timket!

An Ethiopian Orthodox Christian church candle seller walks past federal policemen carrying batons and watching over the crowds as thousands of priests and worshippers walked to Jan Meda.

Let us hope Timket and the holiday festivities which started two weeks ago with Ethiopian Christmas will bring about peace, reconciliation and much needed focus back on Ethiopia's real problems. Melcome Timket!
