Boat trip to the Azewa Mariam Monastery
Oct 2019
We traveled miles/hours across the Peaceful water in a boat where we saw lots of beautiful wild life (crocs, hippos, water lizards, pelicans, Ethiopian Eagles) on Lake Tana to get to Azewa Mariam Monastery situated on a island, where we had to walk 300c along the paths filled with vendors along the route to & from the Century Old Monastery. We had a very good professional tour guide Mr. Temesgen "Teme" whom was very knowledgeable, courteous, and spoke clear English very well; explaining the Biblical stories behind the numerous murals of biblical artwork from the 13th Century; the instruments, and the 3 different areas in which many come to pray/chant/worship at this very interesting, attractive, unique sacred site. Must visit.
