Hi nikon6. I think I've discovered a very interesting gallery. Let me include it among my favourites.
Good shot, nikon6. I still can't believe we can walk inside these temples!
Beautiful village to visit and have dinner...
Exceptional people. My congratulations. Greatings from Spain.
Well done, nikon6.
How much I'd like to have a fantastic greek lunch in this place. I repeat I have to come back. Thanks nikon6 for having reminded it to me and for the great work you've done about Mani.
This one too. I have to come back.
Good capture, nikon6.
