Chers lecteurs, chères lectrices,

Je quitte ce soir ma fonction de rédacteur en chef du blog Un œil sur la Corne… ainsi que le CFEE, la belle Éthiopie, et sa froide saison des pluies (ce dernier élément sans regret !). La relève devrait être assurée à partir de la rentrée. Mes remerciements vont à toute l’équipe du CFEE, qui a rapidement adhéré à ce projet, à nos chercheurs et à nos visiteurs qui ont fait que la vie scientifique au CFEE a été particulièrement dynamique et conviviale ces deux dernières années. Je crois que ce blog reflète bien ce qui a été accompli en la matière, et je suis heureux d’avoir pu participer à cette belle entreprise.

Dear readers,

I am leaving tonight my position as managing editor of the blog An Eye on the Horn… as well as the CFEE, beautiful Ethiopia, and its cold rainy season (this very last point without regrets!). Continuity will be assured by the staff in September. I wished to thank the CFEE team who signed up to this project, our researchers and guests who made the scientific life of the CFEE so active and friendly these last two years. I think this blog reflects well what has been accomplished in this regard, and I am particularly glad that I had the opportunity to participate in this beautiful collective adventure.
