Tonight we went to an Ethiopian restaurant to celebrate Tekle's birthday. When we got there all the tables were full so the waitress seated us near a Mesob (traditionally used as a table, but it was only being used as a decoration--see picture) to wait. Tekle was so excited to see one that he kissed it! It was such a fun night, and Tekle was visibly thrilled. He was even dancing to the Ethiopian music and putting on an impressive show until he realized the waitress was watching ;)
Tomorrow is his actual party so Tekle is having two birthdays in a row!
