kapuchinski the emperor - richard kapuchinski
kapuscinski has had the opportunity to be at the court of ras tafari haile selassi 1 in ethiopia
from his high time to the decline when the rebellions took it all over

the descriptions of the court formalities are great
the recordings of what happened to ras tafari haile selassi 1 make one feel sad, yet comfortable at the same time (strange, isn't it?) with the fate of the emperor
all i can say today is that i am glad ethiopia has returned to a 'normal' society
but it's strange, to say the least, that this proud nation doesn't have an emperor any more...
