  Wolleka, Falasha village
by sachara

From 1985 to 1991 many Falashas were airlifted to Israel. Nowadays only a few Falashas still live in Wolleka. The excellent pottery, that was made here by the skilled craftsmen in former days, you will not find anymore.

What you see now in the several stalls in the village, are items, made for the tourists. Unless you are interested in King Solomon depicted in bed with Queen Sheba, there is nothing really worthwhile to see or to buy.
