160 – day 3: the monopati from Prof. Eliou to Pantocratoros

The friendly monk Filemon explained us in detail how to walk the very old path to Pantocratoros. In this picture of Eliou, taken from Pantocratoros, you can see through which kind af landscape the path goes:

Somtimes it looks as if you walk through a tunnel of bushes and trees:
322 Athos 2007
and then suddenly you pass a fairytail like brook
324 Athos 2007 beekje
and near the strea you can find the ruins of an old watermill:
325 Athos 2007 ruine watermolen
with remnants of the furniture and the old mill stone inside:
326 Athos 2007  ruine watermolen
and outside the building ruined balconies:

I’ll finish with a black and white picture of the laundry of a monk (?) hanging between two buildings near the sea:
