Mesopotamia, Kastoria, Greece
A childhood diary entry from our stay in the village my father grew up in, Mesopotamia. He went to live there in his uncle’s house after both his parents died, though he had been born and raised in ‘town’ in Kastoria. This picture of the town of Kastoria, which meanders around Lake Oresteia was taken on my 2005 visit. It really is a lovely area of Northern Greece.
