Asklipio – the village of “street art” and beautiful kids :)

The village of Asklipio on the South-Eastern part of Rhodes island has many interesting sides. With the following photos I try to highlight the charm and the special athmosphere of the old narrow streets of the village. During my last visit (September 2017) I had a walk through Asklipio around sunset after a beautiful dinner in Nikos taverna. The streets were really quiet, peaceful and I was completely amazed by the delightful paintings under my feet – mainly flowers, the old outside ovens, the lovely kids and the filoxenia of the local people. The place – like every Greek village – is full of plants and flowers, so the air is fresh, beautiful mixed with salty breeze from the sea. The “street art” of Asklipio is a really good example that how easy it is to decorate our life with the most simple things. If you use colors, if you have a little sense of humour and make something alive with some plants, you can create special moments anywhere… 🙂

During my walk I met two lovely kids. The first one was Vagia with amazing blue eyes that she inherited from her great-grandmother. She was eating yogurt as you can see on the photo below… 😀 Her mother was very kind, negotiated us to sit together with them in the garden for a coffee, and her grandmother was peeling pomegranate to make juice of them. The mother also picked off some basil for me – as a present, which is very usual in Rhodian villages. And Vagia tried to give me more and more basil to keep me there, oh she was crying when I left… I really wish to see her again one day!

The second little kid was Rafael with his grandmother. 🙂 The ‘giagia’ was also very open, kind and joyful and asked us about a lot of things. Other people said hello to us and were smiling at us on the streets. Lovely energy, lovely athmosphere…
