In BLOG 1176 I told about the dangers of walking the paths of Mount Athos on your own.
Reinhold Zwerger describes in his book “Wege am Athos” that at least two pilgrims died on their trip through the dense forests and high cliffs. Today another victim is added to the list, as we learn from Greek internet sites:
Wednesday, the 16th February 2011 the police in Halkidiki made a grim discovery. Human bones found in the riverbed in a forest area of the Sografou Monastery. From personal items and documents found with the bones , the police learned that the remains were from an old Hungarian, His traces have been gone since October 29th 2008 and he has since been sought.
The “findings” were transferred to the Forensic Service of Thessaloniki.
