Destination nº1. 
Landing in Mekele, we drove through the Tigray region in the direction of Axum, the capital of the Queen of Sheeba, known for being the resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. Master Gebre Wahid is the guardian of the church which houses the Ark. He cannot leave the church for the rest of his days, and was not photographed.
