Monk Erinarchos lives there alone. He has 14 peacocks, a lot of Turkey-cocks, geese, hens, cocks and an orphaned donkey, whom you can see on my photos here.

Greek Monk Erinarchos (hidden photo) from Macedonia lives in this monastery since 1991.
He lived nine years without potable water, every day he had to go to the next village - seven kilometers there and seven back.
There was no water drain.
All the achievements of the civilization appeared here after 2000.
When the Millennium was celebrated, Israel received many assignments from UNESCO on restoration of historical objects.
Special representatives then went round these objects to determine which it is possible to restore.
Erinarchos asked about carrying out of sewer system, maintenance with potable water, about new road and construction of a fence around of a monastery.
It was constructed with the support of UNESCO.
A little after St. Peter's church in Capernahum there is a little waterfall which flows into the Kinneret. On a hot summer day this is a perfect spot to refresh one self. Here we are after an exahusting hike in Nahal Amud, cooling ourselves a little.
