An Enriching Experience – Galata-Kakopetria outing 7 Feb.

An all-time record number of Strollers, from 10 countries on 4 continents turned up for the excursion to Galata and Kakopetria on Sunday 7 February. The focus of interest were the 7 Byzantine churches, some of them on the World Heritage list, which the group visited. Strollers succeeded in securing access inside some of the churches and admired their murals, icons and other treasures of faith. There were more rewards in store: the sunny sky, the idyllic landscape, with a good part of the walk alongside streams of river Clarios, the rich vegetation, as a consequence of the river crossing the two villages flowing all year round, the visit to Old Kakopetria, and a rich lunch. Compliments to Despina, for succeeding in unlocking the church of Saint Nicholas; compliments also to Teresa, Koula and Alex for sharing their photos. Join us on 13 Feb. on the Limassol sea front.
