Although it was announced that Simon Reeve would show his journey to the Peloponnese tonight, but to my surprize he ended up in the North of Greece, where he filmed his visit to the Holy Mountain. First he takes the ferry at the Athos West coast, but in the second part he pays a visit to the Holy Mountain (2.44 min) , but not in the usual way!
What I expected for a some years was shown by Simon tonight. The monks of Esfigmenou (and Simon Reeve) use the hole in the fence at Komitsa beach to cross the Mount Athos border illegal ! This summer I took these pictures of the fence and border at Komitsa:
