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…

Hungarian woman using writing and photos as an expression. Researching about authenticity, integrity, human values, cultures, rituals, Nature’s wisdom and diversity, women's health, self-awareness, self-healing. Working on her first book on Rhodes island. ~ Főként az írás és a fotó nyelvén közlő önálló utat kijárni próbáló gondolkodó embernek, nonkonformistának tartom magam. Témáim a különböző kultúrák, emberi sorsok és motivációk mélyebb szinten történő megismerése és megértése, természet törvényszerűségeinek és diverzitásának megismerése és megértése, nőiség megértése, kibontása, valamint saját magam felfedezése, egy belső-külső tudatosság és az önazonosság fokozása ameddig csak lehet. Jelenleg első könyvemen dolgozom Rodosz szigetén.
