It keeps on snowing on the Holy Mountain: many beautiful and rare photo’s appear on the internet, such as these from Karyes and the Protaton and the Holy Epistatia building:and the main road and hotel in Karyes, with large icicles! Here a picture from the quay in Dafni, what a different way to start a pilgrimage! (photo from Monastiriaka, thanks).
