A Day with High Tea, a Greek Church, and Art Opening

I started my day enjoying high tea with my artist friend Nikki. Then we walked around the corner to visit the Greek Orthodox church that I've been wanting to visit for many years. Not only is the church gorgeously decorated with many icons, but also contained a body relic of St. John. His hands were amazingly beautiful and withered. I did not take any pics out of respect for one of the patrons who asked that I not take any of him.
