Coffee ceremony before dinner
The last evening in Turmi we were invited by a local family in their compound. We agreed to give them money, so they could buy and prepare a goat for us and the compound, so we could have dinner together.
While we were waiting for the goat to be roasted, the lady of the compound and her daughters prepared local coffee for us. It was lovely to sit together at the skins and drink coffee, served in huge calebasses.
Roasted goat in the compound
Just before dark we arrived in the compound of our local host family. The goats were allready slaughtered and cut into pieces. The roasting of the goats was the task of the men and boys.
They run through the pieces with sharpened wooden sticks and put these sticks with the meat around the fire. It took some time before all the meat was done.
While we all together were sitting on the ground on skins, the meat was cut in very small pieces and served on large injera plates. We had brought some bread to eat with the meat. It was nice to eat together with all the people of the compound, who came to join us.
