Yesterday we took a boat out to Spinalonga! Spinalonga is a little island which was used as a leper colony from 1903 to 1957. People who were sick with leprosy was banished from Crete and I can't even imagine what how it felt to be trapped on that small island. The lepers weren't allowed to leave Spinalonga. The guide told us that they built a sort of community, mostly to even have a reason to even want to stay alive.. Such a sad story, and such a beautiful island. I hope you'll enjoy my pictures!
