Photographer's Note

Back to my last year summer holiday's archive with a nice shot from the castle of Nafplio.

It's a very fine view to see the Greek flag on this castle after a 400 years occupation from the Ottomans.

On the background you can view the valley of Argolis and the place which Mikines are located.

I like also the gold summer sunlight when it's almost time to set.

PS: I changed the word "slavery" with the word "occupation". Not only because I don't believe that the 400 years of the Ottoman occupation was not slavery (for me and for the Greeks, I believe, slavery = occupation and the opposite) but because I don't want to start a political and historical flamewar, especially with our Turkinsh friends. TrekEarth provides civilisation and it's not the right place for "wars" like this. Either Romans,Ottomans or Italians/Germans in the modern years, the slavery is slavery (or occupation, the choise is yours).
