Dimitrios (ATHENS, Greece) on 10 July 2007 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

It was a custom in all the houses to have a mirror with the word KALIMERA written on it. Some of these have fascinating decorations as you can see. This one is in a summer house in the island of Alonissos that belongs to the SPORADES complex in the middle of the AEGEAN sea. So now you know how to say it in greek!
