Ethiopia March 28

This is strange or not that Ethiopia is the only country in the world to have 13 months in a year and espresso and coffee was born in Ethiopia ! There is 9 World UNESCO Sites in Ethiopia the most anywhere and you can see The Great Rift Valley from space, Far Out! Also on Wednesdays and Fridays it is prohibited to eat any animal product in Ethiopia, Well then Try making Doro Wot on any other day of the week and read more great facts about Ethiopia while sipping Chenin Blanc .     

        T’chen chen!!

Azerbaijan May 28


Azerbaijan’s capital city is Baku and it is stunning with its juxtaposition of the walled medieval Old City and the three LED lite pointed buildings shaped like sails. Azerbaijan even has a Maidens Tower that Rapunzel would love. So look it up on any device and maybe plan a trip! In the mean time try my take on Parcha-Dosheme Plov, full of flavor best with a Rosè wine from B.C. Great for late Spring!!
