I am at the Kalavryta Massacre Memorial, site of the most heinous war crime perpetrated in occupied Greece during WW2 : the hillside is dotted with crosses, leaving no doubt about the atrocity committed here. But the view from the top has this soothing, almost redeeming quality of the Achaian countryside - so this is a perfect stop to begin recounting the story of the Greek Resistance during WW2. Earlier, I trekked a magnificent river, rode a narrow gauge rack railway, saw imposing monasteries carved into cliffs, and visited dreamlike villages almost suspended over a gorge - and couldn't think of a person who wouldn't be humbled by the majesty of this experience ! This will become Day 3 of explorabilia's Spring 2019 Forgotten? Greece Tour (I am still looking for a name for it, and just "Abandoned" doesn't cover it anymore !!).
