Byzantine Monk

Time for another portrait from France, not quite what one might expect however just over an hours drive from where we live we found a Byzantine Monastery. It was not ancient by any means but set in very peaceful grounds near the village of Saint Hilaire in Les Corbières.

I asked this monk if he minded if took his photograph. He didn’t!

do you think he's French? or Greek? He looks a bit like the guy in the Pink Panther movies...don't know his name but I mean the guy who was driven nuts by Peter Sellers...sorry Mr Monk ;p

No, he is French and has very gentle caring nature.

I wish there were more 'weekend monasteries' around.
