My host sisters son, Chuchu, made a drawing for me of Ethiopia which is now hung up on my wall as one of my favorite works of art of all time. It was very sweet of him to make it for me and I will treasure it
The painting shows all of the important things in Ethiopia: our house, an Ethiopian flag, an Ethiopian cross, a car, a ball, some trees, and a ‘godjo’ or traditional Ethiopian made house
Party at the Catholic Sister’s house with traditional Ethiopian drums
My host sister made ‘shurbas’ or braids on my hair just like hers
My host mother showing me how to sow a ‘nutella’ the traditional white wraps we are both wearing
