    Giannis has visited these days some kelliá. He publishes on his blog very nice pictures, see: http://agioritikesmnimes.pblogs.gr/ .
    He also has a nice story about monks and a little deer (blog nr 280)
    P.S. Giannis’ blog about his last visit begins at nr 276. On 279 you may see the interiors of shops in Karyes and Dafni (for the exterior see nr 26).
