993 – 2009 Trip to Athos: Karyes and Skiti Andreou day 1 – 14

After arriving on the main road to Karyes soon the panorama of the the small capital appears. The camera point in South East direction. Behind the large building with the rusted roof lies the Protaton church and in the background on the right the monastery Iviron.

An overall view of the “city”, with the ugly roof still protecting the Protaton.

Skiti Andreou

Signs near Andreou

Skiti Andreou – a new shining “bling-bling” tower is about the be finshed. Apparently there lives a monk who is fond of satelite television……….

Karyes – a newly renovated house a shop for farmers with agricultural machines

Look how different the same place is in wintertime!

Karyes – an empty main street

    Athos has an abudance of colours both in nature and architecture, so it would be a shame not to show them.. Black & white works best for moody and close up theme shots.

    I agree! Color is better 🙂

  3. George says:

    The satelite disc, is for the entairtaiment of the young pupils of Athoniada which is housed in Andreou…
