Nice use of lighting and colors. If the monk were a little off center it would make it even more interesting.

How much did he charge you? We found that every monk and every priest wanted a little something, didn't matter what. Even 1 Birr (about 10 cents US) was enough.

Default To Wandering_Dan: I don't pay for photos

I never pay for photos.
I spent four days in this monastry, sleeping on the floor (with hundreds of fleas) and eating injeera with salt, but this way I gained the trust of the monks and was allowed to take any photo I wanted.

That is the way to do it! Except for the fleas, of course. I was still scratching my ankles two weeks later, and we were only in Lalibela for a day.
