Agean Sea, looking out at some of the Greek Isles.

In this picture, after 5 and a half hours, with annointing oil drippig down my forehead, I am bit tired and cold. Hoping we were at the beginning of the blessing route (people were lined up all around the church) we realized our departure would be delayed a bit as the priest went in the other direction around the church - putting us closer to the end:). When he finally got to us, he said, "Hristos a inviat! (Christ has risen!)" To which we replied "Adeverat a inviat! (He has risen indeed!)" Smiling, he continued, "Jessica, this is how we do it in Moldova," while repetedly flinging a larger than necessary sprinkling of chilly holy water at us. We went home tired but invigorated - joyful to have shared in this traditional celebration of the Resurrection.
The end of the march around the church.
All the laid out Easter celebration food awaiting the blessing.
