greek wanderings

Friday, September 7:  I return from the volcano trip to Villa Galinia, where I sit by the pool and relax, and then head out to explore Akrotírion.  I find a beautiful little church with a colorful and lively (!) cemetery out back.   It’s obvious that this little cemetery is well-tended by friends or relatives of the deceased who want to keep the memories of their loved ones alive!

I feel a lot of joy visiting this cemetery.  What a dichotomy, to find such a celebration of life in a place inhabited by the dead.
