main’s religion Is the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church: they view it as their own specific way to believe and practice Christianity. And indeed there are many factors that set this church apart from other orthodox countries.
But you also find many muslims and Protestants as well as a huge variety of tribes whom are mostly animist.
Very few countries in the world have such particular, old and rich cultural / religious practices, as well as such variety of people, dialects, lifestyles or skin colors. It’s fascinating, charged with a vast history and things to learn. The more you travel within, the more it pulls you in and takes out of your world. It’s SO intensely different from what you know, what you are familiar with. There is a moment, after the first days of impact, that you feel like you have stepped into another planet. Nothing is similar to what you have seen before. And no one seems envious nor curious of whom you are.
I took this shot of a group of women who were leaving church after praying, coming up the rock, one step after the other, focusing on the steep climb, silent in their march.
