The girls gifted this little soccer ball as we left.
We drove Megan to the Bethel Women's Center a few days after Christmas. We've picnicked here a few times. Last time we were here the girls had their first experience with a pottery wheel. It was a gorgeous day to get out of Addis. Megan and I packed a cooler complete with a beer for Justin and little pink water bottles full of whiskey sours for Megan and I (I ended up drinking both of them-I guess Meg isn't into afternoon cocktails).
The best part of the picnic was introducing Megan to a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony. My sister is not a coffee drinker (which is absolutely nuts). All the Ethiopian coffee in this country was kind of lost on her during her visit. But I really wanted her to taste it and see the coffee ceremony. She liked it and watching the beans roast and get crushed and then boiled added to the experience!
