1973 Ethiopia

379. Ethiopia 1973 – Gondar

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


Looking through the papers, I found the itinery for the trip. So these pictures here were taken in Gondar where they were to see the 17c castles, the Church of Debre Berhan Selassie and the visit a village of Feleshas, ‘a distinct ethnic group who have resisted christianity over many centuries and who practise an archaic form of Judaism.’

Nice juxtapositioning there between the wealth and the poverty.
