Some pictures of Kefalos. The old capital of Kos in the south of the island. The small village is situated on the top of a hill and can be reached by a steep road. In Kefalos they have used the original Greek blue colour a lot.
The streets in the village are narrow, without a pavement in front of the houses. Almost all the buildings used to be private houses. When the tourists came it is obvious something happened what a Greek man once told me:
People use to have their living-room at the street-level. When tourists came to the Greek islands it happened time after time that people, sitting in their chair in front of the window, saw tourists passing by. They thought: ‘He, tourists. They bring money.’ Next day they pulled down their living-room and started a shop or mini-market. In Kefalos it is very obvious that this happened.
