Kavos

610_8577_wNext we arrived in the worst town of our trip: Kavos.

I know, there are a few destinations for party people. I.e Arenal on Mallorca, Benidorm in Spain, Sant Antoni and Santa Eulalia on Ibiza and so on. Some of these towns are the destination for party people from all European countries, while others are primarily for party people from a certain country. Kavos seems to belong to the second category. It seems to be focused on party people from the UK. How can I know? Simply by looking around. You know, Corfu belongs to Greece and in Greece you pay with Euro. But, here many restaurants and shops offered their goods also in Pounds and pence.

Today, the image gallery is a little bit longer as usual. I hope, you enjoy them.

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 3-11

mm11-600_1974-ecb_w

Today, I have another portrait for you. Unfortunately, this male lion lives in a zoo. The image is shot through a glass wall. He’s only about 2 meters away from me.

I usually don’t go to a zoo. I feel pity for most of the captured animals. Although the areas are designed more natural nowadays and are way bigger then before. They are still captured and not able to live their natural life.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole.

Take care!

Beside the road to Kavos

610_8538_wOn our way from Lefkimmi to Kavos, I was kind of surprised when I saw so many abandoned hotels, supermarkets and restaurants directly beside the main road. I know, there are some economic problems in Greece. These problems might als have an impact on entrepreneurs in the tourist industry. But, these buildings seemed to be abandoned for a quite long time. I don’t know, what happened here. This whole town is closed for a longer time, not only one the winter.

Take care!
