You will regret it, I am sure, if you leave Ethiopia without having visited Lalibela. The enormous churches carved in the rock deserve to be considered one the World Miracles. They are declared a world Heritage which nobody can deny... I arranged to be there just before Christmas when thousands of locals had come to show their faith. The place was really packed but I liked the picture. Thousands of locals wrapped in their ?shamma?, a white cloth used for many purposes, had flooded the streets and the surrounding area of the churches. They had arrived many days ahead and had brought several cooking pots and other things that would help them to survive for a few days. They slept on the ground under the trees and waited for the big day.
Lalibela is privileged with scenic views, as it is built on the rims of high mountains. And also attracts a lot of people for its history and its miraculous churches...... but I'll let the photos tell the rest....
