Mani Mani Mani..........must be funny!!!

Do not ask me why the Abba song inspired me for the title!! lack of caffeine maybe?!

Here are a lot of pics from our trip to Mani in the Peloponese......

View from the balcony where we were staying...the village is called Germa in the municipality of Oitilo, Mani













morning view on the balcony.....













another view from the balcony......I could stay here all day....















A day trip....to Gerolimenas......













Cats waiting for fish from the Taverna........



















dilapidated stone houses........















the village of Vathia














2 bored 6 year olds............



















Porto kagio.................














you can tell I loved the view from the balcony.....this is the afternoon view













day trip to Gytheio......this is the family home of the politician Tzanetakis which is now a museum.............



















Up in the mountains in the village of Drosopigi...........



















another view from the mountain.............













Forgotten buildings.............













stunningly eerie......













more stunning views...........













this village up in the mountains has such commanding views which take your breath away but it's buildings have been ravaged by time and it's inhabitants do not really care........



















Another stunning place called Limeni.....













beautiful buidings..............




















another view from where we were staying ...this the south balcony!!!













I love how the tree is hugging the wall...........














the monastery of Panagia tis Spiliotissas...........



















the monastery is perched on the mountain cliff I was weak at the knees when taking this photograph..........my vertigo was setting in...........













I started feeling nauseous and dizzy...i had to get out of there.....my friend was telling us when she was a little girl the stairs had no protective wall or hand rail it was the steps and the mountain cliff.....one wrong step!!!!!!!!!!!



















well folks that's all.......
later................
