A short walk with lots to see
A mix of photos today. I took some as we walked up our lane and around the back of the Castro. This walk gives you views down over the back of the harbour where I could see the Opera House, still in recovery, and the basketball court, now in need of repair.
You also pass a couple of rubbish collection points on this lane, where the stray cats hang out looking for food. It then takes you around the back, above the kataraktis (the original path from Horio to Yialos) and past several churches, a couple of which is being done up and painted.
You then come into the back of the village and can turn right for the kataraktis, or left to enter the village, then right to head towards Stavros or left to head towards Haritomeni, both village parishes, of which, I believe, there are thirteen. Is that right? I read somewhere there were 13 main churches in the village, not counting the smaller chapels, but I am not sure if each one is a parish as such or just an area known by that name. A bit more research is needed there.
We were on this short walk to go and visit Jenine and the boys for Sunday lunch, where we had a great time and where Neil, being Neil, managed to get himself involved in festive activities. And there I will leave it; that’s quite enough for one day.
