Today, Tuesday 23 October, we went on an excursion – to Chora, Andros. Chora is the main village of Andros, and you can see the Venetian influence in the architecture. Our reason for going there was to visit the Andros Museum, which has a wonderful exhibition devoted to the finds on Zagora. Our visit will inform the work we do at Zagora.
We only had a little while to venture up the hill to the square where the museum is, and a small wander up the main street of shops there. However I snapped the following pics which appealed to me, so I thought I would share them with you. I hope I get back there to explore Chora further because I thought it was gorgeous…. What do you think?
Just a few metres on from the seafront, above, we encountered a corner vacant block which showed clear evidence of the house that had been demolished from the site. This inspired an animated discussion about construction of the house, what the shelves may have been used for, and so on.
