There are many amazing monasteries in Ethiopia. This one is located on a hill top in the capital, Addis Ababa. The people on the left have come to be healed from demonic spirits. Every wednesday they bind their arms together and rock back and forth to ask the priests for mercy. Whenever the villagers get HIV or TB the priests tell them to have more faith and they'll be healed - they just need to throw away their medication - but when the priests themselves get sick they take their pills religiously.

I lived there for ten years, but only learned one of the countries many languages. I applaud the person who knows at least half of these languages.
