Vino...mas!!!


...for two days we were back at the Cretan wine country...



...it was picking time...



...under the shadow of the "Sleeping Zeus"...



...two days of smelling wine on our clothes...hair...hotel room...



...the hotel was absolutely marvelous....I wish we could have stayed longer...but we had too much to do by the vineyards...



...loving....and never skipping breakfast....



...we also had a crew shooting the whole process of grape picking and wine making...




...last stop at the near by monastery...


...I have to admit that all the monks were very friendly and sweet...one in particular had a great sence of humor...he gave me a pear to eat and told me not to believe in all that's been written....!!!! (Love that monk, love that monk!!)

...I was also amazed by the beautiful plants that they had in their court yard...
...this is a huge basil...
...you'd be surprised with what prayer can do!!!




...now, back in Athens....BUT ready for more adventures.....

...another plane is waiting for me....
