“It is about time to use an Ethiopian flavour for beautiful Ethiopian girls,” said Dereje Alemu, 19, a university student.
Now that we are aware of these airy words, amorous words that arrive like an aromatic whiff from the wonderland of the African mind, we must not meet the end of today without seeing at least one sample of the many “beautiful Ethiopian girls” that are presently in this world of our making and taking.

Thank you, Charles. These are my favorite Mudede posts. And I always find it a bit unfair that Charles is typically labeled a "perve" or some such thing every time he does a post like this. So what if he possesses an appreciation for beautiful women? At least he's honest about what he likes. And he's certainly not the only stranger writer who makes these posts (though maybe the only striaght one).

Laid means ugly in French.
Cafe au laid = coffee with ugly.

another CM beauty of course. But why is his taste in architecture so bad?

Kebede is gorgeous! I remember André Leon Talley singing her praises years ago. And someone has to -- black women are increasingly underrepresented in fashion.
We should be asking why, because it can't be for lack of beauty:

the entire horn of africa is filled with would-be/could-be/should-be supermodels. i'm absolutely floored by the simple, elegant beauty of the proprietress of my favorite ethiopian restaurant in SF.
