Early 2020, Margo was in North Ethiopia


Earlier this year just before entering lockdown I was lucky enough to be travelling in Ethiopia.
In the east of the country I visited the old islamic city of Harar with its colourful maze of allyways and numerous mosques.
In the Amara region I was in awe at the monolithic rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the imposing beautiful cross-shaped church of Bet Giyorgis (St George).
Every Sunday large numbers of pilgrims from far & wide converge on Bete Maryam a favoured church of the people, full of colourful priests, nuns and worshipers wrapped in white.
