The weekend following Ethiopian Christmas, we took the Bethel boys to the Lake Hawassa for a fish feed. The lakeside has become very popular as many small shops have sprung up making it difficult to find enough chairs to sit and enjoy the atmosphere yet, our friend Chombe wielded his charms and influence and soon all 23 of us gathered around the fried fish platters and enjoyed the deep fried Talapia caught from our beautiful lake. At dusk we headed back to our house, projected the movie, “Gladiator”, on a big screen and served fandesha (popcorn) and cookies to all 18 of us. I thought, this will probably be the closest thing to a movie theater these youth will ever experience.
