Pascha Sunday: Exploring the Island

Posted by Picasa

We woke up surprisingly early on Sunday morning and were ready to go have fun exploring the island. The weather was sunny and gorgeous, so we headed out.

Of course, Pelagia had to drive the scooter for a little while, so I tried to capture a photo of us by sticking my arm out (see top photo).

When it was my turn to drive again, she took a photo of us in the rearview mirrow (bottom photo).

The middle photo is of our first stop. Here, I am sitting inside the oldest Christian monument on the island – a baptistery which St John the Apostle used. It is hidden in a little valley, marked only by a tiny chapel which our landlord Mihalis pointed out to us.
