Some snaps from Greece

This was built by the Roman Emperor Galarius in the beginning of the 4th Cent AD but was converted later that century into a church which makes it one of the oldest church buildings on the planet that is still used.

Palm leaves that gave me some shade a few days ago

The inside of an Orthodox church

One of the many Byzantine churches in Thessaloniki. This church is probably the smallest. It is well below street level

Golden windows

Good pictures. I especially like the interior of the Orthodox Church -- the lighting is really nice.

The church tower behind the barbed wire with the sun is especially rich.
