Photo of the Fortnight: LALIBELA

April 4, 2011

I’ve just got back from the probably the most amazing holiday of my life, travelling the North Ethiopian ‘historical circuit’. As anyone who’s been will appreciate, my photo this fortnight is an absolute no-brainer.

LALIBELA!

Lalibela: Bet Giyorgis rock-hewn church, reflected in a fertility pool. The 14 churches, spread over 3 complexes, date from the thirteenth century and are carved partially or wholly out of the rock. AMAZING.

(yeah, so the Photo of the Week thing didn’t work out… let’s try Photo of the Fortnight. Hey, it alliterates, it’s already better…)
