Orthodox Christians in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, will gather today to celebrate the eve of Demera, the finding of the True Cross.  :angel:

Roads leading to Meskel Square, a traditional place for hosting huge crowds, have since been closed as the authorities try to prevent traffic jams and congestion.

The eve of Demera, which means the discovery of the True Cross, is a colourful celebration across Ethiopia.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
