Between Bet Medhane Alem and Bet Maryam (Church of Mary) in the northwest cluster is a narrow passage. I arrived just after service and there was a steady stream of worshippers coming through the only link between the church clusters, meaning it was a long but visually stunning experience to wait for a chance to pass. The faithful going one way, the few tourists like myself traveling agianst the flow the other way; it seemed to separate us well.
