It's funny how every single time I travel outside of the U.S., one of the first things that I miss is Ethiopian/Eritrean food. Luckily, I found a couple of Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurants close to where I live in Rome. Once I told all of my roommates that I really missed my food, they all suggested that we make a trip to a near by restaurant. So I took my 7 roommates for what ended up being an amazing cultural adventure.  We went to an Eritrean restaurant called Sahara. Everything in the restaurant was decorated in a traditional manner including the uniforms of the waiters.  They played traditional Eritrean music and even talked to me in my primary language: Amharic. It was simply delightful.
