The Ethiopian Orthodox Church celebrated Epiphany (Timket) on Sunday. Each year on the eve of Timket, the Ark of the Covenant is brought out of the church and carried by priests in a long procession. We walked down to the nearby cathedral to see the parade on Saturday night and were not disappointed. It was a joyful, musical celebration and there were people from all walks of life there to witness it. Things like this make me so grateful to live in a fascinating city like Addis Ababa. It was also a great opportunity to practice photography. In fact, everyone I photographed smiled at me when they saw the camera.
