Flag of Greece  , Central Greece,
Tuesday, October 30, 2012

We’re on the road again. 
A very comfortable bus.  We’re
driving through the huge mountain range through central Greece. 

We stopped at a workshop where they make icons for the Greek
Orthodox Church.  They first make the
canvas they paint on by using very fine cotton cloth and coat it with paste,
plaster and some other common ingredients. 
They sand it till its smooth, then glue it to a piece of wood.  They paint on the canvas as the picture
shows.  The woman is showing us a piece
of gold leaf that they glue to the painting.

We stopped in the mountains at the monument erected in
memory of Oedipus Rex.  This is where he
murdered his father in order to marry his mother.

Doug found an icon on his own.

Then the view of the mountains outside our hotel room.
