On a Saturday in Injibara, our front pasture was flooded with people. A television station had dancers in the meadow, filming a Awi traditional dance, as the Ethiopian television has only a few stations and shows many different regions and their traditional dances.
The meadow was full of people for most of the day, most people in our pasture don’t see a television, so passed a good portion of the day to watch the show live.
Jon watched with a group of boys (who wanted camera practice).
A few boys not from our neighborhood.
I watched with a grow of girls and younger children. The teenage boys and girls rarely hang out together.
At one point in the day, Jon was dressed up and joined a bit of the fun. They tied a red scarf to his head for awhile and then he really blended.
We are ready to get back to our community. We pray as a family to get more involved in intentional ways.
