evening in lalibela

Friday, October 26:  After leaving the Lalibela churches, we head back to the room, where I take a little nap.  Then we go up to the terrace for a bottle of Ethiopian wine: Gouder, produced in Addis Ababa.  There we run into some colleagues of Ed’s from the embassy and chat with them a bit.  We sit and enjoy the sunset and the wine over the beautiful valley of Lalibela.   Dinner follows at the Mountain View Hotel, probably one of the few places to eat in town.  It’s typical tourist hotel food, and not at all memorable.  I don’t even bother to take a picture!

Below are pictures of the town and landscape right outside the Lalibela churches.
