Robert Miles – In The Dawn

Video scenes from the movie “The Matrix”

Relaxing instrumental Ethiopian music

I enjoyed listening to the ethnic music and looking at the pictures. I think it captures the diversity and richness of the cultures as well as the beauty and majesty of Nature in the country, from the towns and villages, to the savannah and desert wadis and volcanic landforms, to the wildlife such as the eagles, giraffes and spoonbills. The pictures of the athletes remind me of the current Olympics, as I read the news yesterday that Ethiopia won the gold medal for the 10,000 metre running event.

Love Will Keep Us Alive / The Eagles

I remember listening to this love ballad on the radio in the 90s and it is one of my favourite songs. And yes, love will keep us alive because love is the reason we are here, and love will see us through every season.
