Ethiopia: Radical Hospitality

Davis Parker's family hosted a bright Ethiopian high school student named Fasil at their home in Huntsville, AL last year. Fasil was part of the Cherokee Exchange Program.

This afternoon, Davis and I visit Fasil's home in Addis Ababa. His extraordinarily gracious mother lavishes us with every known delicacy.

She sprinkles the floor with grasses. The air fills with incense. Our stomachs fill to the brim with delicious injera and meat dishes. The traditional coffee ceremony commences.
