Introduction

.A regular visitor for three years to Ethiopia, this talk depicts an epic first journey of three months in which I traversed the entire country alone to explore both it’s known and completely uncharted mountain ranges, discover its ancient cultural heritage, and experience the religious festivals and legendary hospitality of this most unique of countries. ‘The Tibet of Africa’ – Ethiopia is an ancient mountainous land and one of the first countries in the world to adopt the Christian faith. Hear about my journey to the 13th Century rock-hewn churches of Lalibela; traversing the highest mountain plateau in all of Africa in the Bale Mountains in the cool green south of the country where horses and the rare Ethiopian Wolf abound.
