Today’s episode is really wild. I went out to the Tigray region to do a little bit of rock climbing. While climbing around an area near (but not at) the famous cave church of Abuna Yemata Guh, I found some tombs. My guess is that many people want to be buried as close to the church as possible. It was an interesting discovery, I did not disturb the tombs, and I left donated gear for the Tigray guide association. If you’re sensitive about seeing old tombs (e.g. like Paris catacombs), then feel free to skip!
A little backstory for those who may not know: Besides being a dancer, I’m also an avid rock climber, and I actually wrote two guidebooks (Ontario Rock Climbing).
On a different note, I finished editing this before the recent Ethiopian Airlines crash. I have to say that I thought their international aircraft were really well maintained and the airline was among the best I’ve experienced. I know some people will be scared off from Ethiopia, but I hope this inspires a few others to go.
