I quickly drew this image as part of a drawing thread on WetCanvas last week. I liked the look on the woman's face - part disdain at being photographed perhaps or sitting next to the smoker. The indication of the type of restaurant made me think of the different cultures, foods and rituals and how little I know about many of them. Ethiopian in particular. I searched around a little and found some interesting sites on Ethiopian foods. It was similar to what I expected - stews and a bread, some vegetarian foods too all eaten simply without utensils. I'll have to search out an Ethiopian restaurant when I'm next in a larger city and taste the cuisine for myself.
