a goat on Patmos

A goat we met while hiking up the mountain from Grikos to Chora on Patmos

 

Making new friends: We usually encounter a lot of cats and donkeys in Greece, and sometimes a few dogs and horses. But on certain islands, like Astipalea and Amorgos, we’ve met more goats than people! It was the same case on Patmos, where we passed a lot of goats while hiking around the island. Below are a few pics and two videoclips showing a few of the bashful creatures who crossed our paths.
