Aches and pains: One knee cut to the bone. Not pretty, but not the end of the world either.

Had a glorious walk to the old, old monastery in Samos today. The forested paths, picturesque bridges over rivers, old slate-roofed buildings and spectacular vistas made for an especially nice walk.

This evening I went to vespers at the monastery to hear the chant of monks in their long, dark robes. The acoustics in these old churches is unbelievable.

Wrapped the day with an evening of socializing to balance the day’s solitary walk.
