Home is where my life begins, and my home is “sheger” in Ethiopia, so what this notebook shows is the difference between the lifestyles of rich and poor people. Ethiopia is home to us. In my opinion, this is what Ethiopia means. Home is not what you dream it to be or wish it to be, but the place where you live.
My name is Abel Tamru. I was born in Addis Ababa Ethiopia. I am a painter and studio artist.
