Also in August we went to an Artisan fair in Samos, more traditional dancing, a wonderful monastery and Organic honey ! um.
Medieval Village View

The second week of August we went to a craft fair held in the medieval market place of Agolada, there were many lovely things, but the highlight was the market place.

Five dancing girls

The pool in the Temple

Birds and Mushrooms?

At Eulalia there is what is described as a Pagan Temple, however it is lacking any Pagan symbols, and would appear to be a Roman 'House of Pleasure', the wall carvings are of dancing girls, and the beautiful coloured paintings are of birds and plants, possibly mushrooms and morning glory. It is pre Christian, dated at about 2000 AD.

It was a rainy day so we decided to go exploring.

There are many interesting places to visit locally, and taking time out seems to increase energy to continue with the gardens and renovation works, our current helpers seem to be enjoying their stay and have been with us now for over six weeks, we will miss them when they go.
