Let's see - did anything special happen at breakfast - oh, they didn't have brewed coffee so I skipped it and had an extra juice. The juice here has been excellent.
We started off with the Stelae and Archeological Museum- which we could see below from our hotel patio high on the hill . First we looked at the stelae. The biggest one is …
I had a bad night last night. My blanket and bedspread left my bed and my sheet was virtually wrapped around my neck. I was cold. I gathered them all up again and straightened them, but the blanket and bedspread left again. I woke up a little before 6 with a scratchy throat. When I went down to breakfast I got my coffee and had some bread but …
It's now 6:00AM and the air is cool - I am awakening by the chanting from Lalibela's Churches. I see a cluster of people in white as I peer through the windows. The landscape is peaceful. The mood is very spiritual. Ethiopians are very religious people.

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.
