Ethiopia -
The monasteries  

Carnet of Pollux & Titus

next page

January 2007



From the Copt Christian culture, Ethiopia is really rich in term of monastery. By lack of time with our Visa, unfortunately
we cannot go to the church of Belabela.
              Most of the monasteries are around and on the Tana lake... boat ride compulsory.
                                                           the direction is good

the papyrus are carried across the lake by rowers. It takes a whole day to cross the lake.
Monastery of Debre Maryam :

              the church is in the center of a corridor giving a shade


              the monastery was founded in the 14th century

Monastery of Kibran Gebriel :
              less rich than the previous monastery, this one is less touristic. It has a big monk
              community, from the early age. Women are allowed to visit.

              Go back to the boat...despite their long hair, the monks let Pollux and Titus climbing to
              the monastery
Scenery on the road of Ethiopia : rest of a tank not to forget the past, wheat drying on the road
Gondar :

Gondar castle is the first old house that we see from our entrance to Africa...
