Dear fellow residents,
Let us take you on a little tour of Africa – no, we won’t really be going all the way there. But, at least, we’ll take you as close as we recently got to that continent by taking you with us to the Ethiopian restaurant, Awash. You’ll get to see the restaurant from our perspective – that of two girls presently in the fifth grade.
