It's true, I lived in Florida as well...where those roaches look like they're on steroids!!! And they fly!!

But even they don't compare to the bugs I seen in south America...lawd!!

Lol yes they do fly I done even hear people they bite but idk bout that one tho.

I could just picture South American bugs. In the south we get a break during winter from most of them but in summer its on.

Keep living quarters as clean a possible and aired out.

Blessed Love All
Matafale, the list of words I included, I was counting numbers from one to ten. And, 1. Hulet, 2. Sost, 3. Arat, 4. Amst, 5. Sdst, 6. Sebat, 7. Smnt, 8. Zetayn, 9. Asr, 10.
Yes Iyah, keep the area clean, I think it means different things for a bug compared to a human. I think the oils will help tho... Give thankhs at least these roaches dont fly hahaha
I have not been in south america, the furthest south was Honduras, but yes I agree, still more bugs there. Scorpions in the bathroom, spiders the size of my palm, butterflies that u dont need a magnifying glass to see up close! Ethiopia is easy compared to that.
In my childhood in FL the thing I remember most are anthills and lovebugs (the ones that fly around in summer in mating pairs attached to each other). And fireflies.
Bugs are amazing, I just want them outside of the place I keep my food! Haha

Blessed Oneness
Idren Matafale, I am happy to help introduce more of the Amharic vocabulary. Please remember that Amarigna uses a different character system, not the abc's, so any "spelling" in english letters is just a sounding out of how the Word is spelled. As far as the greeting, Tayna yistilin is a better pronounciation. In RastafarI circles in Cali I usually heard it "tenay yistilin" but I think they have accidentally switched the vowel sounds. The word "tayna" or "teyna" means health, wellbeing. The word "yistilin" means give to you (it is implied that Igziabher "god" is the one giving it). So saying tayna yistilin is like saying May God give you health. Another common phrase is "Igziabher yistilin" meaning God give to you (blessings). (The I in Igziabher is a short ih or uh sound, not I as in pie or sky.)
From what the Elder told I, in Haile Selassie I time, people would say "Igziabher yistilin" to a person who has given something to them. Like you gave to me, may God give to you. Then the person would reply, "Igziabher yimasgan", to God be given thanks. And you chant "Ameyn". Because the person gave to you, together both people thank Igziabher. In Mengistu time, a communist and anti-religious regime, the phrase "Amasaganalehu" became more popular, meaning, I thank you, or I give you thanks. Instead of wishing God give blessings to the person, you now only give them your word of thanks. The acknowledgement of The Most High giving all things to all people has been removed. If you want to bring forward that sentiment, you can say both, "Amasaganalehu, Igziabher yistilin." I thank you, May The Most High give to you.
The phrase tayna yistilin is not so common either, it seems. People usually greet each other by asking "dehna neh (to a male)" or "dehna nesh (to a female)", meaning are you fine? Your reply is to ask them the same question, affirming basically yes its fine with me, what about you?
This answer has gotten far off the subject of cockroaches. If I can be of more help in answering questions about Amarigna, lets start a different thread. Happy to help tho. More Iducation.
Fqr chmr (More Love).
