MONDAY night - tradition & culture

After a very emotional day, Robel (our AMAZING travel coordinator), took us for a traditional Ethiopian meal.
Because the meal is eaten with our hands, the wait staff provided hand cleanser and water before and after dinner was served.

Dinner was served on a table called a mesab. The various Ethiopian dishes were ladled onto a thin bread, called injera. The injera was pinched-off and used to pick up the different meat & veggies. It was actually very good!!

Also included with the dinner experience was traditional dance. Three couples performed various dances that represented the different regions of Ethiopia. They were fantastic -- really gave us a feel for our son's culture.
