Cats & Doors

Ah, Monemvasia, one of my many favorite places in Peloponnese, Greece. This medieval fortress is cat-friendly and home to a small community of docile cats. As I strolled the narrow, cobblestoned lanes, I came across a variety of cats lounging near doors.Β What I found amazing was their indifference to my presence making it easy for me to snap their photos.

The scaredy cat in the doorway below lives at the Pantanassa Monastery in Mystras, Greece.

  1. Sweet. Monemvasia rings a bell. I’m certain that I was there in my Peloponnese-hopping days. We drove around for 14 days with own Peugeots, came by ferry from Trieste to Patras, started in Olympia and then moved along the coast doing all three peninsulas, but I remember that we had to do the easternmost one quickly since we were running out of time. There was an orange-lined main road of a town inland where we separated since one car with my sister was going home one week earlier. This was my first visit of Greece, and I returned at least six times. I have a strong hunch that I loved it. πŸ™‚

    1. How wonderful you spent two weeks driving around Peloponnese! And, that you got to visit Greece at least six times. I love the rural, quiet nature of Peloponnese. We’ve been going there for many years and it’s still pretty much the same. Athens on the other hand, has changed tremendously over the years, but I still love it none-the-less. πŸ™‚
