Hello everyone, on a trip to Crete a few years ago, I was fascinated by the beautiful little shrines that dot the roadsides and how they fit into the landscape. I find them to be such a lovely and idiosyncratic thing and would love to learn more about them. I work as a journalist and would love to write a story about the shrines and how they fit into Crete's culture and scenery.
However information is rather sparse, and best received from someone who lives this reality. Which brings me to you guys! Do any of you have personal experience with these shrines, or know someone who could talk to me about the tradition? Unfortunately, I don't speak Greek, so I realize that this might be somewhat difficult. But I thought I would ask just in case.
Here are some photos I took just so this isn't a complete waste of your time! Thank you so much!
