I think for Ethiopia:
- Long distance running
- Making coffee (the best coffee)
- Driving terribly, and I mean terribly
- I guess from the other thread, very religious

Here's the last episode:

I wonder what kind of audience it attracts. It seems a waste of taxpayers money given that it's no one's first language and rarely used outside of academical and Catholic settings

Long distance running is quite close given that Kenya is also extremely successful at it. As for coffeemaking, i have never tasted Ethiopian coffee but Italy (as well as Turkey and Austria) has a reputation for churning out brilliant coffees and the related bar culture

I guess so, but once we get our marathon record title back, we can have all 3, 5000m,10000m and marathon records. The majority of long distance running legends are definitely Ethiopian though .

The only coffee I actually only drink is Italian and Ethiopian coffee. You should try Ethiopian coffee one day, maybe when you eventually visit a restaurant .
Is Lavazza the best coffee company over in Italy, or are there better ones?

There are better smaller ones, i don't know if they can be found in the USA but Illy, Passalacqua, Quarta and Moreno are brilliant ones.

None. But as it's the only one in the world, it's worth keeping. Doesn't take much effort for a Latin-speaking journalist to summarise the week in a 5 minute summary.

To do news in Swedish, Sami and Russian is much more expensive. But it's worth it too.

Oh, i thought it was a whole channel who broadcasts in Latin the whole week. It has more sense now

Listen to the link I posted. That's it.

While it's quite politically incorrect to say, the YLE Sami is quite exaggerated. They do the work together with SVT and NRK (Swedish and Norwegian public broadcast companies), but when the Sami are such a small minority in Finland (fewer than the Thai), hmm. But whatever. And as I'm a part of the Swedish-speaking minority, I can't diss the Sami news much.

Here's a news broadcast from YLE. Ok, the presenter is quite hot:

For most of the Finns the Samis are remembered and depicted like this:



Drunkards and weird oddities, just like the Native Americans.

Exactly, and that's why you shouldn't accuse random movements of fascism that you have no idea about.

To be fair, Sami have been a minority for decades, maybe having a whole channel for them is exaggerated (it is for Swedish speaking people as well), but the channel is probably more of a symbolic presence
