On the Road Again #48

by

Stepping over the edge of the abyss down the steep trail we entered a secret world of ghost villages, haunting forests, and shimmering rocks and water. There were no tourists, just a few gnarled countrymen leading donkeys carrying supplies for Agios Romeli. We sat with one fellow traveler by a rickety bridge over a sparkling watercourse sharing retsina and our papastratos - two contrasting worlds apart merged in mutual discovery.
We were at the best universities lapping up knowledge in privileged surroundings - he on the other hand had nothing really except his donkey and the awesome magnificence of his natural surroundings.

    He was doubtless lapping up knowledge of a different kind.

    It's fantastically rich in content. Such wonderful memories. I knew you'd travelled roughish a few times to that neck of the woods, but these are wonderful individual and compound stories. I know that once you've finished this particular batch you have lots more travel treats up your sleeve! :-)

    I’ve probably enough to bore my family and friends for years to come that’s if I can keep my memory!
