It was great to meet with a delegation of officials from the Ethiopian city of Bahir Dar this week. Mayor Ayenew Belay was joined by Dr. Nigus Gabbiye Habtu, Bahir Dar University's Dean of Engineering. My thanks to UW Madison staff Jonathan Patz and Rahel Desalegne and of course Alder Samba Baldeh and Deputy Mayor Enis Ragland.
The Ethiopian delegation met with City Engineering staff as well as those from the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District. Their day included a bike tour and a few stops with one of our new Bucky on Parade statues. Great Wisconsin memories for them!
