Cleanliness Is Next To...

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your much appreciated votes and comments on my 'Quiet Day In Kalithea' images and a special thanks to Walt for his lovely UA and to Carole for another aptly processed mod. THANK YOU !

The church in Afitos village; Agios Dimitrios, is listed as one of the places to visit while on holiday there, but, is very rarely open for public viewing and normally has to coincide with another reason to open its doors, such as, to let the cleaner do her work. V4: Same cleaner, different day.
The other main attraction in the village is the folklore museum which was closed for the whole duration of our holiday. The only ancient site nearby is in Kalithea where we walked down a very steep hill to the beach then followed the signs along the coastal path to a caged off area which was the entrance to the site. It isn't open on Tuesday's... Guess what day it was?

All the best all,

Your images do it justice. The cleaner will have quite a crowd of stalkers following her now!

Cleanliness is next to godliness, isn't it? So what more natural than keeping the church clean...

I thought everyone knew that the ancient site at Kalithea was closed on Tuesdays?Tongue

The glories of the eastern Church, miniaturised! Rather a little gem, in its own way.

This is Godliness
p.s. a nice little church, John, and my wife has a lifelong friend, 72, who does cleaning at the nearby church every other day

V4 for me , a woman of character she looks to be standing attention for the Greek national anthem John. Such a small church, beautiful set and
A Great look into more of life on this island.

I like V4 - standing as tall and as upright as she can - well done her (and you).

Cracking set John, love the little church. I'll Google the opening times before i visit though Smile
Just in case that lovely cleaning lady isn't on hand.

I love this image because it gives a real insight into Greek day to day life this wonderful old lady must either be on a rota or go every day to clean the church not for her the modern Hoover a long handled brush will suffice.
And what a beautiful church it is the attention to detail is superb every where you look your eyes feast on something beautiful..


Super set. GrinGrinGrinGrin
