Well after a long time I am headed back for another overland trip with the Dragoman crew.  Countries visited this trip will be Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda.

first stop is Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I will update this story when I get the opportunity and have an net connection.

I will first travel to Lalibela to see the rock hewn churches. Here is the story copied out of Wikipedia.

Lalibela, revered as a saint, is said to have seen Jerusalem, and then attempted to build a new Jerusalem as his capital in response to the capture of old Jerusalem by Muslims in 1187. Each church was carved from a single piece of rock to symbolize spirituality and humility. Christian faith inspires many features with Biblical names – even Lalibela’s river is known as the River Jordan. Lalibela remained the capital of Ethiopia from the late 12th into the 13th century.
