In April 2014 I went to Ethiopia on a Habitat for Humanity build. We spent 10 days is Addis Ababa working on a sanitation project in one of the many slum areas. See Habitat photos. Following the Habitat build I did a tour of north-western Ethiopia with two other members of the team. We visited Lalibela, Gondar and Bahir Dar. Gondar is a former capital of Ethiopia and was founded on the early 1600’s by the Emperor Fasilidas.
In Gondar we visited Debre Birhan Selassie, a Church which is known for its many painted murals, the royal compound containing the ruins and several castles and the Baths of Fasilidas.
The Royal Enclosure (also known as Fasil Ghebbi) in Gondar are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For additional details check out their Gondar website
