Agios Fanourios

Here are some photos from our visit to the panegyri at the church of Agios Fanourios. This is a feast day we go to every year, partly because it is only a short-ish walk from the village and partly because the food served there is a delicious raisin cake called a fanouropita.

Incidentally, if you have lost something and you bake a fanouropita, legend has it that Agios Fanourios will help you find it. We have never baked one ourselves, but perhaps we should have, since last year, at this very service, Emily lost her bandana.

(Which might, come to think of it, be Agios Fanourios's way of punishing freeloaders who turn up each year at the end of his church service to stuff themselves on fanouropites that other people have made...)
