Posers 16 Comments


Last Thursday, which happens to be the day that our own Meron turns 22 years old, we went to celebrate it by organizing all her closest friends, presumably, to a dinner gathering.

We decided on having dinner at a famous local Moroccan spot her is DC. The whole enchilada, it’s a seven course meal but you don’t get to pick the food. Its standard with one choice, one of the entrée is either Lamb or Beef. We chose the latter.

Seven of us, and most of us had never met before.

They washed our hands, Ethiopian style and brought us a towel too, which is supposed to be used to wipe stuff, since we are suppose to eat most of the items by hand.

The also brought Meron a little sambusa with a firework candle attached to it, and a shot of a port wine like homemade Vino. And at the end, she got a certificate, saying in “its your birthday…” or something to that extent. I can’t read Arabic, but they write from the right to the left.

I took picture and you can find the album here, but most of the pictures I didn’t post because dawit messed it up. As you can see and as you have seen Dawit is always very uncomfortable when there is a camera around. He likes to pose, and look at the camera as if he is a model or something. Thus, deleted all the photos that looks posed, because posing doesn’t capture the moment, it captures faraness.

Dawit, stop posing for photos, just relax and continue to do your thing, with out faking a pose. This actually applies to everyone that has a pocket digital camera and poses with people at every event, this is stupid, instead of posing just take the godamn picture while people are doing their thing, this way I know what it would feel like to have been there.

    My belated birthday wishes as well…

    Only 22 and you’ve got ur plate full already! Good job on multi-tasking.

    Whoever chose the Moroccan place, it’s neat! not because I like the waiter’s way of poring the tea or should I say the photographer who froze the moment??

    Nolawi, the subtitle reads ‘Meron’s belly dancing birthday‘ but haven’t seen a word about belly dancing or the belly dancer. Any reports on that?
