Five-Senses Friday

2011 January 7
by Sarah

Jeff is taking me on a “world tour” over the next five days. Tonight was our first journey to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

tasting: east african cuisine full of familiar flavors in unfamiliar combinations; friendship and community

smelling: fresh bread and intoxicating, spicy flavors of roasting meat and vegetables

seeing: hands reaching, scooping, sharing food from one plate

hearing: the laughter and happy voices of friends and strangers weaving together to form both intimate conversation and a pleasing backdrop of sound

feeling: full to bursting… in my stomach and heart
