welcome to lethiopiah – debub gets down and other cultural craziness

What a week. Bahir Dar hosted Ethiopia’s annual Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Celebration. I bounced from event to event, enjoying the music, dancing and general merriment.

Bahir Dar really spruced itself up for the event. New sidewalks, a mostly finished huge stadium, benches and garbage cans installed, freshly painted crosswalks and lines in the road. And flags. Flags everywhere.

Here’s a video of some of the celebrations.

 

If you’re not on facebook, here are the photos I posted. I even have a dress on (!) in some of them.

Cheers.
