Ethiopia is one of the great countries of the world. Truly a land of contrasts and extremes; a land of remote and wild places, while it's capitol, Addis Ababa, one of Africa's greatest cities, beats to modern pulses with skyscrapers, cell phones and expressways. Some of the highest and most stunning places on the African continent are found here. And Ethiopia is old; old beyond all imaginations
Many people visit Ethiopia - or hope to do so one day - because of the remarkable manner in which ancient historical traditions have been preserved. And, indeed, the ceremonies and rituals of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, open a window on the authentic world of the Old Testament. In no other country is it possible to find yourself so dramatically transported back in time or to participate with such freedom in the sacred rituals of an archaic faith.
