Ethiopian New Year 2003

He is three. In year 2003.

Gentle Alemu

One of our favorite Portlanders, giver of incredible hugs. If you meet her, ask for one. Really.

One a beautiful fall day, a little bit of beautiful Ethiopia. We are so lucky to live in a city with such a thriving community of Ethiopians who welcome us so openly. I feel a little like a hanger-on but am so grateful for this hospitality and kindness.

Yay! I loved the video- the music is something I miss from Ethiopia. Any ideas on some good tunes I could buy?

Happy New Year dearest Lori!
