A little bit of information on Lekka....
The village is located 4 km southwest of Karlovasi. The name derives from its first inhabitant, an Albanian named Lekka who came to Samos to escape from the persecution of the Turks sometime probably around 1715. The village has an excellent view to the northeast, and you can see the valley and city of Karlovasi. I've never been here before, nor have I been to the other 3 villages I visited that birthday day. I feel like I'm not doing these villages justice because I usually visit them during siesta time when everyone is home and sleeping, and the weather is very dreary in the winter time.
I took this picture AFTER I was done visiting the village. Look at those threatening clouds!
From the drive up to Lekka, this is the view of Karlovasi and Vasili's game where he is the referee.
|Yes, that is him! I'm surprised my little camera zooms so well!|
