Description

"Do you think that all Ethiopians are beggars?" Zeleka is a gentle, thoughtful boy, still at preparatory school at the age of eighteen, who has a unique approach to gaining the attention of travellers to his city: he asks for their help with his homework. North to Lalibela tells the story of a trip along Ethiopia's Northern Circuit, into an ancient civilisation - its culture, architecture, art, anthropology, and quirks of history, language and religion. It is a journey of physical adventure and cultural awakening, a memoir of the beauty and challenge of travel in the cradle of civilisation. "A compelling read that never ceases to charm..."
