Greece 4--Gialova Natural Beauty
Now the Gialova area is home to a major site for watching birds, lovely hikes, a fantastic beach, and Nestor's palace (from Trojan war period, plus add ons over the centuries by other peoples). Nestor's palace was closed due to some sort of danger in the structure that needs to be repaired. Thus, it figures only as an evocative presence in the photos. The island behind me in the photo is, you guessed it, Sfakteria.
