Bekele is an older Ethiopian gentleman who chose to leave Norway after living there for 13 years. He is getting older and the political situation in Ethiopia is improving, so he decided to return home. He was worried about returning because he had been gone from Ethiopia for so long, so when he first came back to Ethiopia, he had mixed feelings. The one thing he was most excited about was meeting his family and friends again. Being with family and friends is what he enjoys most about being back home. Though there are challenges, the overall experience of returning to his country has been good. His plans are to open his own business within five years.
