Ethiopian Cuisine

On Tuesday our 6th graders had lunch at a local Ethiopian restaurant and explored a couple other West Philadelphia locations connected to Africa. They enjoyed a snowy walk to Abyssinia, located on 45th and Locust.  Before their visit, students learned about the history and culture of Ethiopia and its unique status as one of two African countries that have never been colonized. At Abyssinia, students filled up on various styles of wat that was served to them on top of a large injera.
