Part three of my travel blogs, and then I’m back to the regularly scheduled blogging, I promise! Lots of gorgeous weddingness and fun engagementness coming soon!
We spent a few days in Lalibella and Gondor, Ethiopia. Lalibella was an unreal experience! We were there during the holiday of Maryam (Virgin Mary) and we got to witness the beautiful ceremony with dancing Priests!
The famous Lalibella cross, which was stolen a few years back. It was a huge ordeal but was returned when the thief was caught.

After two nights in Lalibela, we went to Gondar which is the former capital. We toured King Fasiledes’ castle, here is my mother at the castle.
Haile Selaisse’s church had amazing paintings all over, including the ceiling.
