Editor’s Note:

Delving into the depth of its well-stocked in-house archive of Somali history “Zooming into the Past”,Biyokulule Online is pleased to present to its esteemed readers one of the best works of Somalia’s distinguished writer Nuraddin Farah: Which Way To The Sea, Please? This timeless essay retraces Ethiopia’s historical expansionist imperialistic aspirations of conquest and aggrandizement towards its ill-fated neighbors and its notoriously insatiable desire to obtain a foothold, at any cost, in the warm water of the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.

Ethiopia’s colonial objectives towards Somalia and Somali-inhabited territories, an integral reflection of its expansionist national policy, has been uniform and consistent throughout the past one hundred fifty years and was advanced on at an unvarying pace by all Ethiopian governments – from Menelik to Meles.
