HAPPY NEW YEAR! No we’ve not got our dates mixed up – in Ethiopia it isn’t 2010, it has just turned 2003. Ethiopia has its own unique calendar. On 11th September we celebrate our New Year.

The girls and boys gathered at the Girls’ Home to dance and eat a special festive meal. We were entertained by passing musicians and the girls put on a lengthy drama about some of the troubles of trusting people with too much. The story could use a little improvement however Tsahay, as ever, was a star, making us all cry with laughter.
