Eating Raw Meat in Ethiopia

well what can i say. I think we all have to try to survive and eating raw meat is obviously one of them. It’s just part of the culture there.

It is part of the culture. Though it may have risk, it is negligible. I like eating raw beef though it may seem bizarre to the rest of the world. I am perfectly fine as far as health is concerned.
