Photographer's Note

Walking in the little streets of Hydra, every corner is a little surprise for the mind and for the heart!
Views to the sea are always more exciting but also the views to inland, of "Hóra", as we call it, which is the heart of every place,are also very beautiful!!!
There is some images with so many great details that is inevitable not to stop and take a nice picture just for the memories..
This is the front door of a traditional house in the island of Hydra in Greece and the little porch that you see is called "avlí"..is the place where the family get together and spend valuable time chatting and sharing.
The front door is always open to friends, neighbors, family and strangers like me, who happened to pass by..and there is always a friendly person who invites you in, to sit along with them and enjoy the famous homemade "amygdalotá" (little almond treats) and to drink the also homemade orange liqueur...both of them are out of this world with an unforgettable taste!
Posting this picture is my way of saying a big heartfelt thanks to these people who know exactly what is hospitality!
