One of my new favorite rock churches in Ethiopia. Set on top of a mountain, Abuna Gebre Mikael was hand-chiseled out of the rock face in the 6th century and the paintings were done in the 15th century.

Find peace in the night.
When the world runs at a low hum.
When the shadows are long and sight
Is muted.
When passions burn fierce
And fears are manifest
Because there is such honesty
In the moonlight🌛
~C.J. Thompson

"She has felt passion and infatuation many times over, sometimes so much so that she could practically taste the feeling. But she understands the difference between infatuation and love." Kim Quindlen

Whether you’re arriving from neighboring Mauritania or via the four hour drive from Dakar, Saint Louis is a city that will surely charm you. I first became curious about visiting after seeing photos on Instagram (of course); its vibrant colors and beach town allure were hard not to be impressed with. But after digging a little deeper, I discovered N’dar (as it is locally known in Wolof), had far more to offer than just beautiful aesthetics. Rich in history and culture, the city carries strong remnants of past colonial times and once served as the French colonial capital of West Africa and city capital of Senegal. And while it is now cloaked in a slightly dilapidated grandeur -its narrow, provincial streets, brightly colored colonial-era buildings, and elaborately dressed people were enough to leave me utterly fascinated.

@nickiminaj the bofrot seller.  Ghanaians 🇬🇭 call it "bofrot". Nigerians 🇳🇬 call it "Puff puff". Congolese 🇨🇬 call it "mikate" and Liberians 🇱🇷 call it "Kala". They are made of dough  containing flour, yeast, sugar, butter, salt, water and eggs and deep fried in vegetable oil until a golden brown color.
WHAT DO YOU CALL IT IN YOUR COUNTRY?

[Swipe Left] 🇪🇹🇪🇹🇪🇹Today's makeup inspiration is from the Omo Valley Tribes. These tribes are located near the Lower Omo Valley River in Ethiopia. There are over 8 different tribes that live in the Omo Valley. They are known for adorning themselves with body paint, flowers, tribal markings and jewelry. These tribes include the Mursi, Surma, Hamer, Arbore etc.
