849 – Ouranopolis: the boats of Mount Athos

Our reader Vasilis send us some interesting pictures taken in Ouranpolis.
Here is the first compilation, all from the different boats that sail between Ouranopolis and (the westcoast) of Athos.
The biggest boat leaving from Ouranopolis, Agiou Panteleimon

The Axion Estin, leaving at 09.45

The Agia Anna, usually not leaving from Ouranopolis, but from Dafni (to Agiou Anni)

Mikra Agia Anna: the “fast” boat from and to Agiou Anni



(all pictures by Vasilis, thanks!)

    I did not read this book but I found this review by David Kenneth on the internet:

    “I found this book to contain a nasty little story of a late adolescent male with rampant homosexual tendencies having a romp through some monasteries while offering ready opportunity for seduction at every opportunity. The narrative proceeds from one romp with a monk to another. There is little description of monasteries or of surrounding countruside. Half way through I stopped to flick ahead, finding more and more such romps. At that point I consigned the book to the eubbish bin”.

    The images bring back lovely memories of Ouranoupolis and the daily coming and going of monks and pilgrims…as I sat watching at one of the lovely cafes at the port. My husband was fortunate enough to go for 5 days —lucky guy!
