During the trip we are staying at the hotels on a Bed and Breakfast basis. The breakfasts will include hot drinks, basic cereals bread and spreads. For the other meals participants will provide their own food. Vegetarian food is widely available. Most participants will eat out at restaurants. Others, including myself, will be brining kosher provisions with them for the duration of the trip.
The exception to this rule is the time we are in Gondar. The Jewish agency runs a Jewish centre in Gondar for the remains of the Falasha Mora community who are preparing for Aliyah to Israel. There are Israeli shlichim stationed in Gondar, and one of the hotels has a Kosher kitchen which is under the supervision of the Rabbi who is in charge of the conversion programme in the Jewish Agency compound.
The Shabbat meals in Gondar are included in the price of the programme and will come from this hotel.
I will be sending out more information closer to the trip including advice on which food you can bring if you are packing food for the week.
