    • Hello, Sofia! Thank you very much.
      Well … What is happening now in Creative Garden? Is it a revolution? Your blog is updated very frequently recently. Of course, it is welcomed.

  1. What a lovely place! One of those that it deserves to be seen by many, but not too many should be allowed to visit it, in order to preserve it. Oximoron isn’t it?

    • Hello, Vassilis! I have watched the wall paintings in Lascaux Cave. Those paintings are copies. No, cave itself is a replica. Wall paintings were damaged by carbon dioxide exhaled by visitors and mold carried in with visitors, and the cave has been shut down. I wanted to watch real paintings, but I think that it is excusable measures.
