On Saturday we joined the students at Hawassa University for their prayer walk from campus to St. Trinity church. We are always amazed how religious and devout most/many/all Ethiopians are. These are Orthodox Christian students with their own deacons. Women walk on one side, men on the other, with deacons leading the prayers and songs and drumming in the middle.

At noon Sunday we at lamb tibs and stomach with Rhobot's family, and later that evening doro wat (Ethiopian chicken curry) and more tibs with friends and colleagues Walelign and Beza. Nice Easter with nice friends!
