We have some friends, the R’s, in our town who have friends from Ethiopia. Each year their Ethiopian friends host a Goat Festival at the R’s home and people from many countries attend. The R’s told us about the festival and we said we would love to be included. I really tried to restrain myself from pleading for an invitation.
So, this Sunday afternoon we will be attending a Goat Festival for the first time and meeting some Ethiopian people! We are very excited about this opportunity to begin exploring our children’s culture and to make some contacts with Ethiopian people. It would also be nice to have help learning some basic Amharic phrases commonly used with children, “Do you need to go potty?” would be particularly useful!
I’ll try to take lots of photos and post them for you all to enjoy.
Thank you for reading!
