... but enter into the outer ring (shoes off) the floor is woven matting with some seats around the edge. The thatched roof and beams are stunning. Huge, heavy wooden doors leaf to a middle sanctury which is square, each side covered in colourful murals depicting the usual bible stories. The inner sanctury is only accessible to the priests. Very atmospheric. The Christians here are Ethiopian Orthodox and there were a few ...

We (members of both trucks) went to the Ethiostar hotel, where we watched the Australia vs British & Irish Lions Rugby Union test ...

... water pours over the entire width.
Drove back along the shocking road (!) then to the shores of Lake Tana for lunch. Took a boat out onto the lake to visit a couple of Monasteries on the islands and lake peninsulas. So nice to be on a smooth boat ride! The churches are filled with incredible paintings that tell stories from the Bible and the Book of St George and others used by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Of course many enterprising locals have set up stalls along the ...
