One of the beautiful spots in Zaganiari. The Kamara (greek for Arch). I guess it was built to facilitate expansion of the house above without disrupting the pathway.

In the Cyclades, every spring we paint the exterior of our houses with lime (google-translated from ασβέστης, I guess nothing to do with the citrus-like-thing we put in a mojito, any better translation welcome!) making them bright white. And this of course is a great opportunity to decorate the road, too!
