Sunday, November 4: Ailsa’s Travel Theme for this week is Bright. She writes: So what bright delights have caught your eye? Show me your brilliant brights. (Where’s my backpack? Travel Theme: Bright)
Here is a chanting church service at Bet Mikael, one of the churches in Lalibela, Ethiopia, with bright light shining over the believers.

There are beautiful bright paintings found in all the Lalibela rock-hewn churches. These churches, built in the 11th century, are still used today.
