Today was one huge archeological romp! We visited the site Ethiopia claims to house the Ark of the Covenant, some of the largest stele in the world, the palace of Queen Sheba, and numerous royal tombs that were engineering wonders.
Our guide provided us with information that was a combination of oral traditions, archeology, and written history. Ethiopians believe that Balthazar, King of Ethiopia, was one of the three wise men. Today in Axum we visited the tomb of King Balthazar. Two degrees of separation from Baby Jesus! Until I knew the story it was just a hole in the rocks.
The more I learn the more I don't know, but I'm listening to the stones.
You are Always in My Prayers. Love Mom.
