St Barbara’s Monastery


Today we visited the nuns at St Barbara’s Monastery. It was a wonderful visit in a beautiful area. Highlights included: A wonderful meal and conversation; watching the nuns feed the goats (and keeping them back by putting a long stick across their own heads to intimidate the goats with their long “horns”); listening to a very funny joke by one of the older women who had great joy in sharing it.
