Photographer's Note

Bicycles crossed the long way. And everywhere, as the length and breadth of Greece, at the roadside stand shrines. Very dense stand, in some places after a few. They usually take the form of such ,,boxes’’ for the birds, but there are also, and more ornate, in the form of thumbnails churches. Well, put the little chapel in the places where something happened. Most obviously this is just an accident, but not only ... Why not be the case, for example, where it miraculously escaped the accident, where he learned the girl, which came to a head something clever, etc., etc. ... Shrines have the door. Stands there is always a picture or statue, and light olive. In addition to a bottle of olive oil. Sometimes even the gifts in the form ... such as alcohol. The duty of every true Greek, as is the case in this light is off, stop, add fuel and light ... We rode tonight ... Imagine the sight. All chapels burning light. The way goes a lot of true Greeks!

I lost film from the trip, so this is a scan from a photo.
