    Visiting one of the churches on Lake Tana, we found it full of people for a celebration full of music and emotion.

    And then, precious coffee on our way back.

    Sure.
    It's the Beta Maryam monastry on the Zege peninsula of lake Tana, Ethiopia. Many monastries, dating from 1400AD to 1800AD, are on islands in the lake and on its coast, and can be reached by boat.

    It's HERE

    Plenty of them. It's just a matter of time and fishing the good ones. Meanwhile I am just picking here and there what jumps out.

    Here's one, click to se a few more. Please note these are out-of-camera Jpegs, only reduced using Irfanview for uploading.
