AmHaric :) Mar 8, 2007

well, I still remember few words in Amharic, e.g. letenachen (cheers), bunna (coffee), bira (beer). I hope Addis can confirm that I'm not mistaken, because I'm very proud of "my Amharic"

Learning Amharic would take me 2 years of hard work, imagine that in EUR.. Mar 9, 2007

I tried to learn a little Amharic, but I could not even get through with the syllabary. The transliteration into English is another complication, and when I look at the sentence structures and expressions, I guess I should try to learn it from small children...)

Hi Harry, Hope you are enjoying your stay in Addis.

Two of us will attend the event.

I tried to reach you by phone but it says it is a wrong number. Can you please let me know the exact time and place?

We will try to come and see you today

Hi Genet! Sep 14, 2007

Sorry, it seems the guy from Archie's Business Center gave me a wrong number. I have no phone, but my email address is: harry_b@email.de
The Powwow will start at 13:00 as shown in the header of this Powwow page, where you can also find the exact address.
I will be happy to meet you, but today I have another translation project and tomorrow morning I will have to prepare the DVX demonstration.
See you tomorrow,
Harry

Seems that we could not make it... Sep 15, 2007

Hi Harry,
Unfortunately, we could not make it due to unpredicted situation.

We hope to hear more about the meeting in the coming week.

Have fun!

Mission accomplished :-) Sep 16, 2007

The other 3 attendants of the Powwow have not yet signed up, and I will have to upload the photos from Germany, but it was fun and productive as usual.
I would be glad to attend or organise the next Addis Powwow as well.
