MY WORLD TUESDAY: THE BEAUTIFUL PLACE I LIVE IN




Many times before i showed you the place i live in, the beautiful island of Salamina.

I love the way the green of earth unites with the blue of the sea.
On Sunday we went to Kanakia, a place in Salamina, half an hour from our home.
We visited my husband's cousins to their country house.
On our way there, i took photos of some important places in the island.
A view of Salamina from Panorama.


The monastery of St. Nickolas of Lemons (it calls that way because there're a lot of lemon-trees around the monastery).

The old church of St. John the Kalivitis.



The great forest of Kanakia.



I love this island with its beauties and the great history.

That is a beautiful island to live on judging from the photos. The architecture is great and the beach looks inviting on a New Zealand winter morning.

Hello Antigoni!
Thank you for worrying me!
I'm more than delighted you worried me from the news.
Earthquake happened near Tokyo but I'm OK.
Earthuquakes happen a lot in Japan.
but this time my house shook badly during the earthquake.
I hope big earthquake doesn't happen!

By the way is your sister good?
she emailed me she went to the hospital for four days for her treatment.
I really hope she is getting well!
Please say hello to her and hope get well soon.

Antigoni, Is there a port where Navy ships can dock there? I'm thinking my daughter mentioned going to Salamina, when she was in the Navy about 20 years ago. I know her ship always stopped somewhere at Greece.
