Ethiopia is Africa's oldest independent country, and is also the second most populated country. Ethiopia is also one of the founding members of the United Nations. Ethiopian Abebe Bikila was the first African to win gold in the Olympic Games. He finished the marathon in first place after running the whole race barefoot. Ethiopia is the only country in Africa with its own alphabet. Actually it uses an Abugida, also known as an alpha-syllabary, which consists of 209 symbols and 25 letter variants. Ethiopian children must learn both their tribal language and the country’s official language of Amharic. They must also have a good grasp of English by the time they start secondary school. From the age of 12 onwards, all school lessons are carried out in English.
Ethiopian cuisine (Amharic: የኢትዮጵያ ምግብ) characteristically consists of vegetable and often very spicy meat dishes, however they do have phenomenal vegan dishes as well. This is usually in the form of Wot, a thick stew, served atop Injera, a large sourdough flatbread, which is about 50 centimeters (20 inches) in diameter and made out of fermented teff flour.
Traditionally, Ethiopians eat exclusively with their right hands, using pieces of injera to pick up bites of entrées and side dishes. Their menu combines favorite classics with contemporary dishes featuring authentic Ethiopian flavors packaged in mouth-watering morsels of local and imported ingredients and spices.
