The opening was supposed to begin about 7:00 or so, but for reasons unknown to me or others with us, it didn't start until almost 8:00. It began with one of the local priests blessing the people, including the dignitaries, musicians, bldg., etc., but it lasted a good 15 minutes. Speeches abounded after that, all in Greek of course. The shot of the white bldg on the hill is the monastery that overlooks the bay. You can also see how long we were there waiting for the good stuff--food and drink.
