Ethiopia - November 2015.
Follow my travel memories: memoriasdeoriente.blogspot.com
It was my first time in Africa and the experience was beyond my expectations. I was marveled by the beauty of this country, by the breathtaking landscapes of the Simien mountain, by the smiles of the kids on every village we stopped, the magnificent medieval castle of Gondar, by the bustling streets of the holy muslim city of Harar, the impressive Blue Nile waterfalls and the old monasteries around the lake of Bahar Dar, the delicious coffee and the unique ritual to prepare it, the monumental buildings carved in rock in the ancient city of Lalibela and view of the devotees dressed in white ropes praying during the sunrise, the churches on top of the cliffs of Tigray and the unforgettable tour to the wilderness of the Danakil depression, territory of the Affar people with the martian landscapes of the sulfur lake, the endless mirror of the salt lakes and the fascinating Erta Ale volcano. Ethiopia was like nothing I've ever seen and that journey resulted in one of the greatest adventures of my life.
I hope you enjoy the video and hopefully dare to explore this beautiful country, I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. I want to thank everyone I meet in the road who made this journey even more memorable.
