Easter Chickens



Eating meat in Ethiopia is considered a privilege and is normally reserved for special guests or holidays, like Easter. When we were living in the countryside some of our Ethiopian friends would come down to visit us near the holidays. Not only did they want to see us ; ), but they wanted to hit the local country market, where live chickens were sold much cheaper than in Addis. They would come with money from their friends and 'stock-up' on chickens. This picture is of my husband (in the green) and some of our friends after taking Alula to the market. We thought it was fun to be driving around with live chickens in the car, and our friend was happy to have saved a little $$. Fun memories. :)
