It was disgusting. More bitter than sour, too thick, too dry (presumably because I spread the batter too thickly and had to cook it too long). I ate a few bites and had to toss it. The doro wat? Pretty good, if too mild. And I have some of the mock berberé I made for it leftover. I think it’ll go great on a steak. So, not a complete loss for this round.

Shoes. In The Road, we’re led to believe the shoes are all gone. Perhaps that was...
