Sun Shines Everywhere 4111

Robert and Lilian Dubow recently visited their daughter, Jesse, in Ethiopia. Jesse is a 2010 graduate of ACLC and a current Peace Corps volunteer serving in a health center in Lode Jimata of the Oromia region. In the picture, Jesse has prepared a “buna” ceremony for her parents and the Alameda Sun. Buna is the traditional way that Ethiopians serve coffee. The beans are freshly roasted over a tiny charcoal stove, ground by mortar and pestle and brewed in a clay pot called a jebena. “Buna is the Ethiopian way to welcome guests,” wrote Lilian. “We enjoyed both the hospitality and the coffee of this wonderful country.”
