Day 50, The path to St Panteleimon

Here are a series of pictures I took on the footpath from Xeropotamou to St Panteleimon’s. From reading accounts of monks walking from monastery to monastery on the Holy Mountain, I had an idea of what it was like there. I was wrong. One of the pilgrims on the boat to Athos told me that the Athonite peninsula is exceptionally green, given the surrounding country of the Chalkidiki part of Greece, and that there are a lot of natural springs and creeks to be found.

At any rate, if you like nature scenery, look over the pictures. If you don’t, you can probably skip this post.
