... after St George. We are told that mountain climbers use this cave like a base camp, and that they tie colourful neck scarves at the opening that we can just see high on the side of the mountain. The first monastery we stop at, the Holy Monastery of Saint Barbara, gives us our stair climbing work out for the day. High up on the mountain, this monastery Is now inhabited by 13 nuns. The women in our group had to wrap skirts around our pants to enter the small Greek Orthodox ...
