This coming week will be full of important events for the students at University for Peace (Upeace). On September 12nd, Ethiopians celebrate their new millenium, the Enkutatash, or the "gift of jewels". The country and the diasporas all over the world will celebrate this special moment with family and friends´ gatherings, food (injera!) and music. Between the 13th and the 14th, depending on the lunar calendar, it starts Ramadan, the sacred month of fasting and spiritual retreat for Muslims. Next Saturday (15th) there is Costa Rican Independence Day. Public parades are expected all over the country.
I wish you all a great celebration!
