About the community:

John Page wrote: There were (in 1967 when I transferred in from Nigeria) PCVs only in Felege Nway.....Felege Nway (which means "I want money") was the last stop on an Ethie Airlines circuit to the south, just after Arba Minch, another Gemu Gofa (I think) town which also had a grass landing strip. There were Volunteers in Arba Minch the year before I was there, but none in 1967-68. Roads to the south stopped in Arba Minch, Felege Nway was three days walk to the nearest road . . . not a big spot on the map.
