  Debre Libanos, local market
by sachara

Not far from the monastery of Debre Libanos was a local market in the shade of an enormous tree.

We stopped to have a look. The people were selling all kind of herbs, vegetables, beans, cereals and fruits, but also mysterious things, we couldn't recognize.

At the market were a lot of donkeys for transporting the goods. It was my first local market I visited in Ethiopia and I really enjoyed it to walk and look around. The local people were very friendly, as we found out later, everywhere in the countryside .

Debre Libanos lies 110 KM north of Addis Abeba
