We also visited the Awassa Youth Center which provides a broad range of activities for youth including theater, music, juggling and martial arts. Here the drummer is warming up for his band’s practice session. In the end, the best part of the trip was reuniting with former students. I hadn’t seen them since I left Ethiopia, 43 years earlier. Surprisingly many of them, now all grown men with families, had not seen each other either. So the get together was warm and heartfelt, a tale to be told in the next installation of our story.
