It's a nice looking place, but the pool gets a lot of use by the locals, so it takes a while before you as a guest have the ability to use it without being overcrowded. Also beds are terrible, not only uncomfortable, but also that just fraction too high to what most people are use too.
The aircon is useless, coldest setting just felt like a fan blowing air around the room. I ended up sleeping on the floor with no covers to keep me cold and had my legs under the bed touching the cool marble floor.
Sort from that, it has a great view.

It'll be about a 4 or 5 hour drive there today, so …

Speaking of lunch, today's was interesting. We had lunch at a mom and pop type place except for a little old grandma was the one to start the restaurant. Everyday they have pretty much the same menu and customers walk through a sort of cafeteria line and pick out what they would ...
We had a quiet morning doing discovery time and tiding up.
Our Belguim neighbours got quite excited when they saw us packing up and came over to ask us when we were going (nothing like friendly chic chat!), I have to say it was quite satisfing telling them we were actually staying another night! They had moved down to 'our' end of the campsite the previous day because there was too many flys where they were but their friends didn't move with them ...
... pictures instead. The main monastery was called Grand Meteoron and we had to walk down some stairs and then up a bunch more to get up to it. It was literally built into the rocks. They also had this funny zip line thing that went across for some of the handicap monks and priests to get into the monastery. It was kind of funny to see. After the monasteries we went back to the village for lunch and made our long journey ...
... and graphic descriptions of the means. A different view from a religion that we have not seen before. One painting shows the event when a Greek Orthodox priest threw a Nazi soldier off the cliff when he tried to place a Nazi flag in the place of the Greek flag. They took to arms when they were prosecuted by various other ethnic group. Old swords and rifles are displayed with pride. These priest also hide many of the classical works of ...
