We did a tour (in Amharic, so don’t ask us questions about it) of a large Ethiopian Orthodox church. This church is atypical to the normal circular construction of most Ethiopian Orthodox churches as it is for hosting international events.
I really liked the embroidery work on the priests gabis, it had the Selassie church designed into it.
Ethiopian culture is rich and deep. It’s amazing to live in a culture with thousands of years of strong tradition. Very high context also but, there is an intense dignity, pride and celebration of roots.
The graveyard had some interesting monuments...
Standing in the place where kings have worshipped and are now buried and a good history lesson always makes me full of wonder and feel so small.
