Our reader Yves Mylonas from Belgium visited Athos recently, together with his brother and uncle. We are happy that he shares these pictures with us:
A new parking place is under construction, just outside Ouranopolis.
The result of the work in progress: cars parked all the way towards the border.
The Panaghia refuge: father Lucca from Prodromou, with Yves and Guy. It is said that father Lucca “runs” this place nowadays.
The dormatory at the top: look at all the matrasses pilgrims left behind.
Willy (aged 70!), Guy and Yves at the top (respect!)
The current situation at the top: I see no difference with October 2011. Pictures of this hike will be shown soon.
I expect to recieve recent Athos-pictures of Jan Paul ten Bruggencate, who just also visited the Holy Mountain in the last month.
