But some of those frescoes have only some faces obliterated, probably of de-canonized or "heretic" saints, and these probably result from intra-Christian feuds between the Byzantine and Roman churches.

In 500 years, maybe archaeologists will be looking at the modern graffiti (which we think is vandalism) and commenting "hey, this reflects the secular period of the early 21st century when the place was in disrepair and used as a tourist attraction..." and thinking it's historic and interesting!
I am very sure we have more churches than you have mosques there on the island. Of course, there has always been vandals all around the globe.
Again I should remind you that it is ''WE'' who destroy the world, not religions.
Thanks a great deal for your precious comments.
Ride safe and happily.

Hi Venturer,

My holyday starts July 4th, but coming all the way from Holland it will take me a while to get to your region.
Have you got any plans about how long you guys are going to be on the road?

If you are well on your way by the time I get over there, I might still join you along the way.

How’s the riding over there right now by the way? Heard Istanbul got some snow last week.


Ride safe

We plan for a fortnight (a bit more or less). But I want to meet you on the Turk-Greek border. It will be better this way. We shall start our ride when you are here. I think I will be able to see you here on 7th July.
I live in Tekirdağ (close to border) though I am from İstanbul. And snow has started again this morning.

Sounds great, that gives me about 4 days, which should be around 650km a day, sounds do-able. Maybe I can even get a day off early.

Don't worry about that. Take it easy. Ride safe and that's more important than everything.
