... of the church during the service.


Wafts of incense consumed the narrow rock carved walkaways opening up onto the three story church ascending some 15m out of the rock towards the sky. With its unique distinctive cross flat roof and 12th century guttering it was a magical experience. The pilgrims all shuffled past in their white Cortas, offering me just a sneaky glance and then they prostrated themselves in front of St Georges. Addis showed me the Hermit ...

Grotto and more rock churches

Our plan today was to drive to a grotto and see a church that had been constructed in a large grotto at the time of King Lalibela (11th century) and where he is buried. We were told that it was about an hour and a half drive to the village and a 15 minute walk up the mountain.

Woke fairly early, and got up around 4am to pack.

Watched the soccer in the lobby for a while, then wandered into the restaurant which was also in darkness to see if my breakfast was about. Found the 2 waiters fast asleep on the floor covered in sheets, and no amount ...
