Yod Abyssinia-spectacular Ethiopian dancing

Yod Abyssinia is the cultural restaurant in Addis Ababa.  There are two; one on each side of the city.  It's where all the tourists and business people go for traditional food, drink, atmosphere and dancing while visiting Ethiopia.  I beg Justin to take me because I crave injera and shiro so I couldn't wait to take Megan for dinner one night.  Justin, Meg and I left the girls home with Eneye and drove the short distance to Yod for a grown-up dinner.  We stuffed ourselves with shiro and tibs and were amazed by the dancing.  It's truly spectacular and I don't think you can really get an understanding of the pride Ethiopians have in their culture until you see them dancing in all their finery.
