Happy Easter from Thessaloniki!
I have arrived with some time to spare before meeting Roger, Mervyn and Paul for our pilgrimage to Mount Athos.
The walk from Edessa was mostly through orchards and sheep pasture with some cotton and wheat fields.
Luckily for me the cherry trees were just coming into blossom and they looked wonderful.
Although it's Easter in the west its Palm Sunday here. My confusion is increased because the few Catholic Churches are a mix of Latin and Byzantine rite.
Here is the slightly disorientating (or perhaps re-orientating?) Catholic church of SS Peter & Paul in Giannitsa.
