Photographer's Note

Just came back from a 7 days trip to the magnificent region of Mani. What an unbelievable place!!! Rough, wild landscapes, dozens of picturesque villages, hidden Byzantine "treasures", amazing traditional architecture, incredible towerhouses! This small, "insignificant" country, can still surprise me, after 5 1/2 years "on the road".

But, before the "serie" from Mani...

We are entering the "Great" week, the "Holy" week before the Orthodox Easter (although, I think, that this year, it coincides with the Catholic Easter- please correct me, if i am wrong), so i decided to upload a photo from a holy place, Meteora.

Here, you can see 2 of the 6 still "active" monasteries (once upon a time they were 24) in Meteora, Anapafsas Monastery (or Aghios Nikolaos Monastery,to the left) and Roussanou Monastery (or Aghia Varvara Monastery, to the right).
