Out of the Jurisdiction: Patmos

Patmos is a charming Greek island close to Turkey.    

Saint John was exiled to Patmos.Saint John the Theologian Monastery and the Cave of the Apocalypse are dedicated to him.  As with most of the religious sites in these islands, 
photos are allowed in the courtyard and exterior but not in the religious areas.

I couldn't persuade any of the women on the tour to buy one of these pretty scarves.

They may regret passing up the scarves, Jack! They look nice in your pic.

The scarves and the island certainly are pretty.

Lovely photos, especially the one of the bells. How classically Greek.
