... once a thriving biblical kingdom, but what remains unearthed is merely 5%. The potential discoveries remains endless and an archaeologists dream.

Unfortunately our exploration was cut short, I suffered my first episode of doxycyline side effects. Defeated by the sun and the severe exaggerated burning, Alex and I left the famous city after experiencing three of its top sights; the obelisks, St. Mary's Church of Zion, and Sheba's Palace.


The Ancient Kingdom of Axum

... stored in the Chapel of St. Mary of Zion church where it remains today. Only the high priest of St Mary's is allowed to enter the room where the ark is stored.

When the ruler of Ethiopia and his subjects converted to Christianity in the fourth century CE all Ethiopian churches were constructed with a "holy of holies" area (as in the Jewish tradition)on the east side that contains ...

... he would tell it to me like it was). The size of the obelisks that were made from a single stone were impressive in their size and carvings. The tombs were also mind-blowing. And the fact that they hadn't excavated 90% of the site due to lack of funding didn't make sense, considering its ...

... bare feet on rocks and dirt and kept a smile on her face the entire time. When we stopped for q dip in the road the guide told her to stay away from the bus in case a rock kicked up and hit her. She followed us all the way to the church, felt bad for not buying anything but really did not want anything, Our hotel sits on top of a hill over looking the town which makes it inconvenient to doing anything, our guide arranged the driver to take ...

... rough I cannot type nor read. The bus is rattling things are falling off the seats, I lost my water bottle, never to be seen again.....outside Debark we descend the mountain on a road built by the Italians. It's beautiful vista but a bit of dangerous road with sharp switchbacks and of course dirt road.

    I stayped here for one night. The reason I have choosen this hotel, because of its location, overlook the Stelae Park and St. Mary of Zion.

    The view is over-rated. I could not see anything because trees blocked the view.

    Staff are not friendly.

    Rooms are old and run down with broken funitures, saggy mattress, broken bathroom fixtures.

    To make it worse, rooms here are over priced.

    I guess, they don't care to please anyone at all!!!

    If there is a ZERO, I would give them that.
