More Greece

Here is a Little Chapel which is on the side of the road in the more rural areas of Greece. It is a "thank you" to God basically - the people put them at a car accident site where the people survived. They are really beautiful and I am so fascinated by them. This is the only one I could get close to and get a shot of. They have olive oil, an oil lamp and matches in them. People light them at night and I'm sure they are beautiful when illuminated.

This was at Delphi and is called "The Navel of the Earth". Delphi in ancient times was considered the center of the known world, the place where heaven and earth met. Located high upon a mountain, this was the place on earth where man was closest to the gods.Which is why they called it the navel of the earth.

The photo on the here is of a beautiful Greek village, with its red tile rooftops and gorgeous view of the mountains.

The next photo is a beautiful Corinthian column from the ruins at Delphi.

The beautiful Aegean Sea.

Next is a Roman Market from Delphi.

More gorgeous views. The sky is a piercing blue. Almost surreal.
