Timkat/The Day of Epiphany: is one of Ethiopia’s most colorful and pious religious holidays.  Pilgrimages to sacred sites, raucous musical processions and holy men donning special attire that hold with-in it’s structure copies of the Ten Commandments, dot the country on this auspicious day.  I decided to take it all in at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lalibela, an ancient Northern city that is home to many churches which are carved deep into the ground.
