The week is ramping up to Fasika (Easter) on Sunday. My polar opposite existence continues, constant harassment on the streets and hospitality inside Befakadu's house. Today I ran a basic experiment. I walked around town with almost no skin exposed. I covered my face with my buff and my tucked my hands inside my long sleeve shirt. My idea was to test the skin-color aspect of the discrimination. Although brief, the results yielded were almost identical to having some skin exposed. I experienced the same amount of harassment, but at least today, no rocks were thrown at me! More photos below. Enjoy the photos.
