ABC Wednesday, Greece, L for Lonely Life at the Top


Kalambaka

On our way to the Meteora we stopped at Kalambaka for lunch. We were fascinated by the high and strangely shaped mountains. I had  never seen anything like these rocks.

I shall write more about the Meteora in my post of the letter M.

Living conditions are very complicated on these strange and steep mountains. I'll write more about this in my next post.



 High on the tops of these mountains, monasteries were built.  People live here their, sometimes, lonely lives.

This post is dedicated to the letter L, and we thank Mrs. Denise Nesbitt for creating this meme. You can participate in this game. You only should find a photo or a subject in poetry or the name of a famous person....beginning with L.


And... please refer to Mrs. Nesbitt and the ABC on Wednesday. You can also put the logo in your sidebar or post. If you have any problems please contact one of the team members.

What fabulous photos, Wil. I wish we could have seen more of Greece than the Parthenon last year. Perhaps someday...

Ik vroeg me al af of je bij de Grieken zou blijven... en dat deed je, leuk!!

Fijne week Wil.

Hello Wil:
They are most unusual peaks and living up in that mountain range must be very lonely, But then, men of god are happy just to communicate with their god and pray in silent contemplation. Perhaps being so high up makes them feel nearer to God.

Best wishes,

Di.

Looks like a great place.
Yes, living conditions are tough and it does get lonely at the top.
Nice pics as usual, Wil!
Have a great week!

Since I subscribe to Saint of the Day, I've read about so many saints who were hermits. This area would have appealed to some, I think. Since I live alone, there are times that I think a place like this would appeal to me. Those mountains are unusual and lovely. I'm eager to see more of Greece through your eyes.

It does look desolate and one can imagine lonely. Always interesting post on the theme.
