It’s That Time of Year
As one of the world’s oldest Christian nation, and proud of it, Ethiopia takes Easter deadly seriously. There’s a lot of fasting for Lent, which has meant a lot of good vegetarian food for me. But tomorrow is Easter, and the blood of food creatures will flood the streets in celebration of the resurrection of the Jesus.
Time to splurge for a slaughter. And that means people are coming into town to purvey and purchase livestock. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a soon-to-be-dead sheep today.
