Remembering An Ethiopian Monastic Adventure a Year Later

DebreDamo-3Last year this time I was preparing to fly to Ethiopia in order to visit ancient Christian churches and monasteries and come to a deeper appreciation of Ethiopian Christian art. One dream was to visit the monastery of Debra Damo. This video gives you an insight into the challenge I faced to scale the side of the cliff in order to gain access to the monastery. I am happy I did it a year ago because I’m not sure if I could do it again.
