Mana Babura: The Mill
The mill houses here get a lot of business. Without them, bread and injera would take a lot more time to prepare. Since building a bread oven, I have found reasons to visit a mill for corn, chick pea, and whole wheat flour. The costs are pretty affordable, about 1 bir (7 cents USD) per kilo ground.
The above photo is of a gas powered mill close to my home. Inside there is powdered grain everywhere. While the mill is running, you have to shout to be heard.
