  •  I photographed the religious feast of Palm Sunday (hoseanna) in Axum.
    it is celebrated before a week of Easter. It commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ with the disciples into Jerusalem. People welcomed Jesus by spreading palm branches. The best place to observe this ceremony is at St. Mary Zion Church in Axum.
    the culmination of the festival is when pilgrims and priests pray all togheter under a big  ficus tree.
