With somewhere to go!
Jon has never officially needed to wear his “gabbie” before. It is worn by many Ethiopian people and is looped and draped a specific way for a specific purpose. Gabbies are worn for funerals, church services, weddings, etc, etc. Some men wear them everyday. It was like a rite of passage and would be as amusing to neighbors as a thirty-year old in the US not knowing how to fasten a tie.
Off to church and then a community meeting they went.
Zelalum, our friend in the green, couldn’t go, he just got Jon dressed. :)
