Most Ethiopians are Orthodox Christians. While walking in the town, I noticed people of all ages walking in front of a gate, kneeling, kissing the ground or wall and making the sign of the cross. As I approacehd it, I realized that it was an Orthodox Church. I also noticed that the women would cover their hair as they approached this area. To them, the whole area around the church is Holy ground thus why they would kneel and kiss the floor, even though they weren’t inside the church. The whole area just felt serene and peaceful and I entered the compound and listened.
Ethiopians are very hospitable people. Once when I tried to cross one of the major highways,a good samaritan came to my assistance,stopped traffic and actually guided me across.
Another time,as I tried to get myself to the airport,I found a very nice lady having her meal who offered to ensure I got into the airport.Thank you Anne, I will forever be grateful.
Their food is very tasty and I particularly love their meat. Their staple food is Injera which they eat with most meals. I however do not enjoy Injera much ,I find it a bit too sour since it is prepared through some sort of fermentation. Most people however love it,so give it a try.The restaurant was nice enough to offer me buns instead.
Ethiopia is famous for its coffee and thus it would be a shame not to sample a cup. At the airport, make sure to visit the local restaurant and have a fresh cup of coffee. Its interesting watching them prepare it right from the coffee bean to the cup of coffee. Drink Up.
