    Seven kilometers south to Gavrio, with several sandy beach along the way, the bay of Batsi, on the west coast, appears with a small sandy beach and large houses builton the slopes of the hills like an amphitheater. It is now a major tourist resort.

    The church of Gavrio does not seem to have any interest and furthermore, I have been unable to find its names as it is always referred to as “the church in Gavrion”. Though, it has a pleasant look with its front entrance with three vaults framed by two bell towers, which is rather unusual in Greece. May be it is nevertheless worth a visit (we did not!) but that no guide give any information about it as visitors do not stay in Gavrio!

    The narrow alleys with stairs that lead to the upper part of the town are now desert. It is always a mystery to see that the crowd that was on the quay only a few moments ago has disappeared so quickly! On top of the stairs, the church stands quietly.

    Everywhere I go, I look at chimney tops. The one I spotted on the heights of Andros was the most crooked I ever seen with the upper part that could swing with the winds. This is certainly due to the fact that Andros has such strong winds, from various directions.
