An Ethiopian Traveler

An Ethiopian man waiting at a gate at Lalibela Airport. I was on a study abroad trip to Ethiopia over spring break. We were traveling from Lalibela to Gondar when while waiting, I saw this man sitting behind us and couldn't help but take a photo. His bright and traditional attire fit perfectly in such a historic place.
