IS IT SAFE TO BE IN ETHIOPIA – LALIBELA?

0 comments

 

Absolutely! Ethiopia is truly one of the safest places in Africa. People are friendly and like to help.

Trickster you find everywhere in the world, also here, that's nothing new. Addis is a big city and you should take care of your belongings, especially around Merkato and Piazza. Lalibela is also safe- no worries. Only if you come for ethiopian christmas (genna) or Timkat, when it's overcrowded it's quite often that thieves are around. In general one fact might annoy you: the people/kids who will again and again ask you for money- please! dont give, this is for sure not their way into a better life. Another thing which will happen: you will get charged 'ferenji' (white people) prices.-and normally there is no way around that

    Genna (Christmas) in Lalibela is always celebrated by thousands of pilgrims who came from all corner of the country. Some of them even walk for more than a month to reach this holy town, believing their sin to be forgiven if they made it on foot. From the 4th - the 8th the churches are full of Pilgrims. On the 5th January there will be a big overnight service taking place in Bete Emanuel church, and on the 6th night to the 7th January morning the colour full Gena will be celebrated at Bete Mariam church. Anyone can attend both overnight festivals.
