Emily and Phoebe

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Athens, the kids have Friday and Monday off because of local elections and we're thinking of going for a walk. Here are some pictures from our last volta.

Wow, very pretty! The trees in the Mediterranean are so different from the ones that grow where I live in the northeastern U.S. And since it's autumn now, any leaves still clinging to the trees are either orange, red, yellow, brown or maroon. I especially like the very last photo in which the lanscape is visible through the stone arch. Do you happen to know when the stone structure was built? It reminds me of the book Saffy's Angel by Hilary McKay, when the characters visit a "stone garden" in Italy. Phoebe and Emily remind me a lot of the endearingly quirky sisters in the Casson family books. Plus you write in such witty "British" English that it reminds me of McKay's writing style as well.

Hi Paige, the stone structure is a ruined church, which must date from the twelfth or thirteenth century, I guess (pretty recent for hereabouts). I've not heard of the books you mention - I'll check them out and see if they're suitable for E&P.
