Entry Description

We spent the night in the Debre Damo's monastery in Tigre. It is perches in a plateau in northern Ethiopia, on a flat-topped mountain. The scenery is fabulous and it's true wilderness there. Just reaching the monastery is adventure as you have to climb a 15 meters wall with a goat line. I woke up early in the morning and met Anmar. He is a monk in this mponastery and invited me to his place before guiding me all through this amazing plateau...
