Photographer's Note

KARPATHOS is a island of the Dodeskanesos. It lies somewhat isolated, roughly halfway between Crete and Rhodos.

Life is slow in Diafani on the island of Karpathos and traditions persist. In summer it's a modest, low key seaside place. Most tourists pass through here when they visit the mountain village of Olymbos, but we enjoyed staying there for a couple of days.

Occasionally a cruise ship stops here, and sometimes the villagers put on a dancing show for them (i.e. for their money). The show was great, but the cruise hoppers weren't that interested. Me and a couple of other tourists who stayed locally in town, did enjoy it very much, though. Respect!
