I came across this colourful and interesting scene in the Entoto Mountains above Addis Ababa. Emperor Menelik II founded a large church up here before going on to create the capital of Addis Ababa. It’s a very important church for Orthodox Christians and the priests hold large ceremonial processions here and in Addis itself. The priest (draped in yellow) is trying to choose a ceremonial umbrella that is to his liking. He is assisted by another member of the church. I watch the priest try just about every umbrella over several hours. When I left he was still out there trying umbrellas!
