In December 2014 I had the opportunity to visit Ethiopia and spend a few days at and around the old holy city of Lalibela, a UN World Heritage site famous for its 11 rock-hewn, monolitic churches that were constructed around year 1200. Ethiopia was one the first countries in the World to adopt Christianity as a state religion, and has its own independent tradition and patriarch.
