AmericaOnCoffee (AOC) is a story of love brought to you by Life. We are dedicated to the Homeless, the Missing and the Exploited.
In the U.S.A., trains date back to the old west and cowboy era, However, during these modern times, wagon trains and railway have inspired many innovations about trails and railways. We can attribute these makeovers to: time, technology and trends. Mass transportation has transitioned from horsepower, locomotion to being propelled by various modern energy sources. Passengers, waiters, cooks, porters and conductors, have all been impacted and/or displaced.
What are some of the changes that have taken place? Railways and trains are being modified into unique structures. Some of the most popular modifications have been stationary museums. Others are used solely for public accommodations. And many are utilized in full or part, for transportation.
As people, places and needs for accommodations keep transitioning, more railway concepts are coming forth. Keep in mind that whichever innovative train adventure you choose to journey, it will be fun, nostalgic and very scenic.
Railroads have been an integral part of our country’s history, connecting east to west, shipping supply to demand, and connecting farm to hungry city table. It’s a rich history tied to – and driving – major events, and it’s a history worth seeing, smelling and feeling up close. The following museums let visitors hear the steam-whistle blow, smell the grease on the axels and step back in time. source

“Before the next teardrop falls – Makali”
Makali, is seemingly an obscure artist who sings this duo with Beix. In
Makali’s musical associations are 4 main references: Mark Tau, music, PNG, One Blood. Makali could be from Hawaii, New Guinea, Samoa or some other part of the Pacific Islands/South Pacific Islands. What a beautiful twist their island voices give to this nostalgic Country song in an English and Island dialect duo.
Quick to make, and tasting just as beautiful as it looks, our French Toast with Maple Ricotta, Raspberries and Basil is the perfect bed in breakfast that incorporates everything you could want in a brunch in one delicious bite. Using baguette slices, and a thick ricotta topping with mashed berries, makes for an easy and clean eating meal. Add coffee and mimosas to the mix, and this dish will have you in bed all day long.

By the age of 13, Aster was determined to become a musician, and began her career at Hager Fikir Theatre in Addis Ababa.
Starting in her late teens, she was performing in clubs and hotels in the capital with bands such as the Continental Band, Hotel D’Afrique Band, Shebele Band and Ibex Band, before they became the internationally known as Roha Band.
Aster’s distinct style has been influenced by other Ethiopian singers, such as Bizunesh Bekele.
Launching a solo career, she was encouraged by musical entrepreneur Ali Tango, who financed and released five cassettes and two singles of her music. By 1981, Aster had become disillusioned by Ethiopia’s oppressive political climate following the death of Haile Selassie, and relocated to the United States. Temporarily settling in the Bay Area of California, with plans to pursue higher education within a period of two years, she settled in Washington, D.C., where one of the largest Ethiopian expat communities in the country existed. There, she became increasingly popular within the Ethiopian community, performing in restaurants and clubs.
Aster also remains popular in Ethiopia. In 1997, she performed in Addis Ababa for a crowd of over 50,000 people. In 2003, Aster also performed a two-part concert series to raise funds for relief and school initiatives in Ethiopia. The first concert was held in November on Eid Al-Fitr day at the Addis Ababa Stadium, with an audience of 40,000 in attendance. The second performance was a gala-dinner at the Sheraton Hotel. More recently, on May 9, 2009, Aster performed in front of a crowd of 10,000 spectators during the Peace Through Unity, Unity Through Music concert held in the capital’s Millennium Hall, alongside other Ethiopian music artists.
