The Mule Market Lalibela, aside being the holiest place
on earth, it accommodates a rare sighting, a mule market that only takes place only 3 times in a year.
Within these occasions the quite city comes into a
trading commotion. It was interesting to find through
all the images produced that we only are able to come
up on images of only monasteries and sermons taking
place and yet Lalibela and its surroundings come together
to trade and commute. In this series of images
you will see a small insight into the mule market and
the people that ride long through the highland mountains
to meet the market in the fields of Lalibela.
