Photographer's Note

On the morning of Timkat festival in Gondar this January a tragedy occurred when the spectators' podium crashed due to overcrowding, killing 10 people and injuring dozens.
This was taken before that, however, while the celebration was still proceeding the way it always does. We did not get any standing positions, as we arrived too late, and were literally allowed only 2 minutes in order to take a few photos from behind the wall. We arrived at around 5.30 AM, those sitting or standing were there at 4. No guide can help, no intervention possible. Just arrive early.
