We took a weekend trip with Sukey and Nik up to Lalibela and Axum. Yes, we were just in Lalibela a couple of months ago, but it’s one of Ethiopia’s most interesting historic sites and we felt our guests should see it, too. It was fun for us to go again: we saw some new things, and the guide we hired to take us through the churches put a slightly different spin on the history from the last one.
Alekka stayed home this trip. She’d been to Lalibela twice already and she had lots of homework to do. But we made a new friend on the hotel shuttle bus. Lori was interesting company and added much to our enjoyment of the weekend.
