Hi Steve - sound like you are having a very interesting time - so how do you say Hello Please and Thankyou to an Ethiopian?

Hi Paul. Saying "Thank You" was a real headache for me. The word in Amharic is "ameuseugenallo". It was the first word I tried to learn but it took me about 4 days because I kept getting it mixed up with "Lamb Saagwala" - I'm sure you can understand my thinking!!! Once I'd mastered it we moved to a different region with a different language! What's wrong with "ta"?
