    Camel market, Kurkiftu

    October 23, 2019 in Ethiopia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    A *very* long day in the bus. Great fun seeing the camel market and lots of beautiful scenery again.

  • Day9

    Medhane-Alem Adi Kesho

    October 21, 2019 in Ethiopia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Our first rock hewn church. It is quite incredible to think of the years of effort that must have gone into it, patiently scraping away at the rock face. Photos don't do it justice.

  • Day9

    Yeha

    October 21, 2019 in Ethiopia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Visit to this pre-Christian temple built out of large blocks of stone and standing 14m high. Nearby is a slightly older palace complex which is still being excavated.

    October 20, 2019 in Ethiopia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    First the Stelae of Aksum. Then the Palace of the Queen of Sheba. Finally a visit to the church of St Mary Zion where they keep the Ark of the Covenant in an adjoining chapel.
