My name is Wasihun Ayele (Kanu) I grew up on a farm in the highlands of Lalibela with my family of Thirteen who are nomads. Life wasn't simple, the vast fields bore witness to our curiosity. and as kid, I spent my time with my families as a Sheppard and helping on the farmland which demands hard work to tilling, planting, caring, fertilizing and harvesting! So, This is where i have learned to obey the rules of our Mother nature, the tradition of the local community, the importance of Education and hard work.
As I got older, I went to school in Lalibela city and later to Addis Ababa, I got my Diploma with three different filed of studies in Tourism, Human Resource Management and French Language. I also attended more training in Lalibela Vocational School to stay updated myself with current happenings and information worldwide.
Then after school, I quickly understood the importance of preparation, Globalization (As i believe that i am one of the Global family), and as our Mother nature is something really worth need to be protected and very sensitive!
I have worked as a trekking guide for the National Park of Abune Yosef, Bale, Simien Mountains, City guide in Addis Ababa and tour guide to all tourist and non touristic parts of the country for over 13 Years, leading many tours with people from all over the world.
Now I am living in Lalibela, Ethiopia and I have a big house with different three rooms and I wanted to host Israeli travellers to Lalibela who wanted to stay with locals and understanding the local community lifestyle with a reasonable price!
I am the Israeli homestay provider in Lalibela, Ethiopia!
