flashing lights Christmas necklace that Julie sent me.
|Darling Tigist and Meheret in their fancy|
|Ethiopian Christmas tree|

Meheret ("Tutu"), his wife, Belaynesh, Tigist and Euale
They also have two older sons and a married daughter.
|We visited sweet Yeshi and her daughters in their home the |
day after Christmas with the elders. She insisted we eat!
(See our doro wat, dabo and injera below.)
|The traditional coffee ceremony is a BIG part of |
the Ethiopian culture, but since none of us drink coffee,
they served a special hot barley drink and also hot milk
to go with the Texas Sheet Cake I brought to Ayele's.
