Looks like one of those places where you have to watch out for the vashta nerada, microscopic piranha of the air.

I don’t know who this Ethiopian Nun/Monk is, but I love her smile. I can see the peace within her reflecting on her face. I guess that is the kinda joy you feel when marry Lord, Jesus  ;D

I found her photo by accident while looking for a hotel in Ethiopia and since then, I’ve been using this pic on facebook and other Ethiopian sites.

I thought this was some sort of homage to 4'33'' and was about to argue that it doesn't work with the individual level experience of an internet forum. In replying it appears your link is broken.

Thank goodness for Google Translate! You really wanted to see if I was serious! It sounds like your father has a lot in common with this man whose parents attend my parish (unfortunately, I've never seen Joe in church except when he has come to meet his parents.
