<< Lalibella - Just A Few More

11/16/19 - Lalibella - Further Explorations

There was more to see. We descended to lower levels and crossed canyons on high bridges. We made our way through a long dark passageway, guided only by touch and sound. The entire complex is a labyrinth of passages connecting ground level, the churches and another world below and isolated from our own.
