Pray and play

It's funny how this medieval little church goes perfectly well with these colorful baloons. The decoration is because an orthodox baptising is taking place inside.

Greece is full of little churches like this. They are everywhere, especially on hilltops, serving as points of reference for the travellers of the past, places of worship and reason for folk celebrations on the nameday of the patron saint.
