'Timket', Ethiopian epiphany ended today.
Aside from the religious ceremonies, Timket celebration, for many young men and women, is considered to be a chance to meet someone special.
Traditionally, the man would throw a lemon at the young girl that he is interested in and they will hopefully start flirting with each other.
And the song, loosely translated, goes like,
"I tossed a lemon and got him at the chest...I wish I've gotten his heart instead....." Now it seems like city millennial has changed the lemon into another fruit and tossing 'Prim' has become widely popular and fun.
Here in Addis Ababa, a street vendor sells to a kid dressed in traditional way. She is just buying to eat it though.
