Ethiopian Trip

Hi to everyone,

I have just returned from a rather exciting trip to Ethiopia. On top of buying gorgeous leather bags, purses, clutches etc – we did a trip to the North of Ethiopia – Darhir dar. We took a boat trip to the island where we visited an 800-year-old Monastery. Because most of the island locals are illiterate, all the walls have been painted with biblical stories depicting the bible – truly amazing.

Ethiopia has a very high central plateau that varies from1,290m to 3000 meters above sea level, I really struggled breathing and finding the energy to do the things I needed to, but one has to do what one has to do and get on with it – slowly – slowly.

We are about to embark on a trip to Morocco and will return with a few exciting things for the shop, this time around I’m having a “holiday” (not much stock shopping) much to my husband’s delight.

Hope to see you all soon in the beautiful Berg.
