Injera

Today I found out that in Ethiopia, if you want to compliment a person, you say that "Selam is injera."  Not, "as good as" or "like" but "is."  That's how highly injera is valued.  An elder in my program, when bragging about her son in Addis who has a masters degree and provides very well for his family said (in Amharic), "He is injera."
