I've made a book on Blurb.com with photos and commentary of my trip to Ethiopia in April. Blurb are currently having a photobook competition so I've decided to enter the book in the Travel section. The short list is determined by public vote so I need people to log on and vote
for this book before November 9th.

The link above will also allow you to preview the whole book and also purchase a copy if you're interested. Book description Mention Ethiopia and inevitably the images conjured up are of drought, desert and famine. Beyond this media-generated stereotype however is an extraordinary country with a civilisation stretching back millennia, a unique culture and religion in the only African country never to be colonised and a natural landscape with some of Africa's most beautiful features.
This book tells the story and shows the images of a journey through the historical circuit of northern Ethiopia, revealing the hidden and
remarkable treasures of this misunderstood land, including the wondrous rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, the medieval castles in Gonder, the spectacular Simien Mountains and the Blue Nile Falls.
