Off to Ethiopia

I will be traveling to Ethiopia over the next week, so posting will be relatively lighter (although that’s probably to be expected given that it’s a serious holiday week in the United States).  We’ll be traipsing through the northern, so-called ‘historical circuit’ for most of next week, bookended with some time in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital.

Along the way, I hope to put together some thoughts about Ethiopia’s current transition following the death of longtime president Meles Zenawi earlier this summer, so be sure to check in.

Of course, December will be a busy month for world elections, and I look forward to the inauguration of Enrique Peña Nieto as Mexico’s new president, snap elections in Japan, a presidential election in South Korea, presidential and parliamentary elections in Ghana and parliamentary elections in Romania.
