  1. Bordode? It is the area not too far from where I was born. Bordode is also known by the railway station name Arbaa(Harbaa) not too far Awash station on the old Chemin De Fer railway line. It was also linked to Galamso by a dilapidated road built by the Italians. I don’t wish this savage cruelty on anyone but I hope it does not have any ethnicity in nature. Oh My Goodness!!! Woe!!! Woe!!! Woe My Beloved People and Country!!!
