Harar, Ethiopia

Harar Ethiopia is an amazing place. It feels like stepping back in time. This is one of the gates to the ancient walled city.

The Orthodox Christian traditions are very powerful here in Lalibela, Ethiopia. It is so amazing that these rock-hewn churches were chiseled by hand out of the surrounding stone.
My time in Lalibela, Ethiopia was life changing. This is my sunset view from Ben Abeba restaurant. I love the African skies.
It was a long and arduous drive from the main town of Lalibela to this monastery located under a cave. I met with an Orthodox priest who was very wise and gracious. He showed me the sacred objects that are used in worship.
