Wow, this might be longest I’ve ever gone without fully functional internet. Nice to take a break but the few times I tried to get online were fraught with frustration. After almost 2 weeks in northern Ethiopia, and most of that among the pilgrims of Lalibela, I’m now heading to Nairobi for two days of R&R before beginning the Maasai Mara Within The Frame Adventure.
Lalibela itself was amazing. There is a quality of light there, among the throngs of pilgrims and the stone churches that is simply beautiful. Add to that a feeling of participating in something that seems to take place over a thousand years ago, and you’ve a sense of what an adventure this trip was. Then add traveling with a wonderful group of talented photographers and running into Mitchell Kanaskevitch a few times, and it makes for an amazing start to 2012.
My flight boards soon, and then I’m out of touch for a bit. Hope your 2012 is off to a running start, full of adventure and beauty. I’ll check in when I can, but don’t hold your breath! Cheers!
