1. We had been working in Ethiopia for a week when a friend of ours invited us over to his house for a meal and a cup of buna, the Amharic word for coffee. In Ethiopia, coffee is an integral part of the culture, even more than in my hometown, Seattle. A traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony requires special dress, extreme attention to detail, and a reverence for tradition and ritual. Even though we weren’t given an official coffee ceremony, the amount of work that went into our pot of coffee was astounding.

    The Donkey Mobile Library is the brainchild of Ato Yohannes Gebregeorgis and was designed to address the urgent need of supplying books to children in rural areas of Ethiopia. Yohannes discovered that donkeys were plentiful in these rural areas and that books were not. Donkey Mobile Libraries run a circuit from school to school and from village to village bringing books to eager children.
