Lalibela -- Addis, Day 4

The Roha Valley at 6:30 this morning, looking north from Lalibela, the main town in Lasta, located in the North Wollo Administrative Zone--700 km north of Addis. Beautiful day, 15 degrees. 


Two generations of Saint David's boys. Behind them the Roha Valley looking north from Lalibella. 


The teachers representing the Saint David's school faculty. 


The entire contingent with our guide Mulugeta. 


Leaving Lalibela for return to Addis aboard our trusty Toyota 'Manhattan,' ironic.  


It's a spectacular drive down the mountain road from Lalibela. The countryside is dominated by ploughed fields and small village communities. 

The fields are still ploughed, as they have been for centuries, by a single blade pulled by two oxen controlled by a farmer with whip. 


All the houses are traditional. Remarkably beautiful. 


This afternoon we visited Lucy at the Ethiopian National Museum and Trinity Church, home of the Patriarch, in the heart of Addis.
