Yesterday was Clean Monday, the start of Lent. To learn more read what I posted last year with photos or better yet go to this new web page based on an excellent article by the Athens News Agency.

Our Piso Aliki Beach and large parking lot is perfect for kite flying and as usual a fair group assembled for the fun. This is Karin, looking like a pro, after our neighbour Nikos launched the kite for us.
Sunday we went to Antiparos looking for the scheduled end of carnival parade. Although we did not find it we had a delightful time. On a countryside walk we discovered this new construction in the Santorini style.
