Today I made another excursion out to the Monastery of St. John the Theologian in Souroti, where Elder Paisios is buried. This time it was to take our neighbors (and probably best friends), their son John and his fiancee Marie.
For Marie, a British girl who is not Orthodox, it was the first time at an Orthodox monastery and I think she had a very positive experience.
Afterwards, we drove on another 15 minutes to the first part of the beaches on Halkidiki, specifically a little town called Nea Kallikrateia. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed a great lunch at this traditional Greek taverna.
