Visiting Kato Scholari

Posted by Picasa

On Friday evening, we drove out to the village of Kato Scholari to visit the Kralli’s. Kato Scholari is a little village about 25 km east of us. Fr Luke Hartung and his family lived there for the last couple years of their stay in Greece. We went to visit the family of Gerontissa Efpraxia, the abbess of the Monastery of St John the Honorable Forerunner in Goldendale, WA. We first met her brother and sister-in-law, Athanasios and Sophia, when Gerontissa took us when we first arrived in Greece just over a year ago.

Since then, we’ve tried to keep in touch, but pretty unsuccessfully – until, that is, we got the car. It’s good for us to visit them for many reasons – not least of which is the opportunity to work on our Greek.

Last night, we took these photos, primarily for Gerontissa and Fr. Luke & family to see. ( :

In the top photo, we have the Kralli’s (with their daughter) and me. Gerontissa’s photo, hanging on the wall, is also in the picture.

The bottom photo is, obviously, of me, Pelagia, Athanasios, and Sophia.
