    Very interesting to listen to your growingup story in Ethiopia spoken in fluent Amharic .
    I was born and raised in Ethiopia. My father is from Yemen and my mother is a native Ethiopian . Born and raised in Ghimbi, Wellega. I left Ethiopia in 1976 together with my family to Yemen.
    God bless you Dr Arvid and would like to wish you all the best.
