Great emka 2020-06-19 23:32

Hello Steve, Interesting scene after the funeral. In Western culture the colour of mourning is black, here apparently it is white. You were lucky that you had an opportunity to see it.

Best regards MAlgo

Hi Malgo, white is the colour for all Ethiopian Orthodox religious events - not sure why. As much as anything I think it identifies the affiliation of the wearer. cheers, Steve
