Strolling the streets in late June after an early afternoon rain shower, one might find the air glistening with a parade of wings. They aren’t dark and densely swarming like locusts, but they aren’t quite as sparse as butterflies either. They are summer dragonflies. In Amharic they are called “kirempt agagabis” which literally means the entrance of summer. Staring down the road with the sunlight cracking through the clouds and bouncing off the dancing translucent creatures, it really does look like a shimmering gateway for the Ethiopian summer to come right on through.
