One-Session Class: Ethiopia and the Timkat Festival
Come along on a journey to Ethiopia and explore the rich culture, the Orthodox Christian religious history, and, especially, the biggest holiday of the year, Timkat. The holiday celebrates the baptism of Jesus, and the religious fervor permeates the country for days. We will travel to many cities, hike in the Simien Mountain National Park, and revel in the celebrations.Victor Poleshuck and his wife, Joyce, have a lifelong love of travel and particularly enjoy learning about other cultures.
