While most travelers go to places in Ethiopia by plane from Addis Ababa , the capital, we chose to do it all by car.
It felt like we were traveling through the whole African continent due to the diversity of the sites and people we experienced.
These photos reflect the timelessness of all these places. Time has stood still in most parts of the country.
Locations: Lalibela, The Danakil depression, Konso, the Omo Valley, Hawassa and Addis Ababa.
I was born in Paris but have lived most of my life in Los Angeles, CA.
