apparently, three years of posting blog items about graffiti and economic conditions isn’t going to cut it, so let’s look at something nicer: meteora. meteora – literally, “suspended in the air” or “middle of the sky” – is a collection of six greek orthodox monasteries situated on sandstone pillars. although we couldn’t take photographs inside the sanctuaries, where all the really beautiful frescoes are (including a truly gruesome one of all the ways the early martyrs met their deaths – some of the pagans were quite inventive), we still saw plenty to marvel the eye.
