Tigray Rock Hewn Churches

The churches in the Tigray region are carved out of the rock and were often at the top of mountains, enduring 2.5 hour walks to the top. Here are extracts for one that included scaling a 5m cliff face and a walk along a ledge with a 200m drop below

    Hello you two, can’t believe you have been on your trip for 64 days already! love reading all your news and soo jealous, would love to be doing it with you. How amazing was that encounter with the Gelada Baboons? glad you do get to stay in ‘lodges’ every now and then, you must love it?
    So happy for you that you are going to be with your mom and dad soon. Amazing how time flies it seems impossible that you are going to be in Kenya in two weeks?
    Lots of love travel safe
    Glenda
