St.Nikolaos Ragkavas (I)

The back yard of St.Nikolaos Ragkavas, in Plaka.
We were there for a twin-girls christening, on Saturday morning.
An oasis to hide from the burning sunlight.

I love the vine-covered window! Peaceful spot.

As the shrine and the temple are mysterious to people who are out of Japan, we also feel mysterious to these churches.

If possible, I like to see yourself in those scenes.

Beautiful church! Are the twins identical or fraternal? How many minutes apart at birth? I'm an identical twin - 9 minutes older than my "little" brother! Regards from EAGAN daily photo

Please take us also inside the church!

Hilda, you got it exactly: peaceful and cool also!

Nori, I took a photo of an "oblation" in the church, like the little shoes on the big one, you posted the other day. I will post it soon.

Leif Hagen, I do not know many details about these twins because they are not so close to me...
I do have a great curiosity about identical twins though-are their minds so identical as their bodies?!
I did take just one photo inside, the one I told Nori, above. But I can easily "take you inside" other churches, I will keep it in mind!

Athens, the capital of Greece, with more than 3.000.000 people....
It's not just ancient ruins and pollution.
Its' also the suburbs, everyday people, gardens, bitter orange trees.
