That means covering the knees and shoulders and being quiet. We saw tourists improperly dressed and some of the monks were visibly upset with their disrespect.

The trek up the hill to the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian and the Cave of the Apocalypse was an adventure but there was plenty to look at…after we left the forest. (grins)

The local bus dropped us at the bottom of the huge hill (mountain?) to the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian and the Cave of the Apocalypse. There were a lot of taxi drivers waiting to take travelers to the top. We decided to be frugal and hike up way up the hill. If there was a well traveled path, we didn’t find it. The trek was very rough and quite steep and we questioned at times if we were going in the right direction (we knew we had to go up but that was it). We made it though!
