Faith in all its guises, from the extreme to the mildest, has arisen as a massively determining force in global politics, humanities and even, recently, medicine. Some would argue that this is not really faith - it's the management of faith by its modern leaders. However, there are places in the world where faith is real and it permeates ever single fibre of the faithful - from their everyday lives to the way they conduct themselves. Lalibela is one of these places, where pilgrims from all across the world will often walk to, crossing thousands of miles, just to stand there and pray.
