More Shots of Rock Hewn Churches - Lalibela

Here is the one that looks like a cross from the top, looking at it from the bottom.
I have a thing for doors and windows.

Local dwellings - though not all people live in these. There are cement block structures as well.
The window through this doorway is shaped like the top of the towers build in the more northern town of Axum.
Jane with our guide standing by one of the rock hewn pools. Some were for baptism, others like this one are for fertility. (Little sycretism going on.)
