A window and door to Greece

Blue Walls
18 Sept 2013 | From Milda of Greece

Milda sent me this card as we decided to continue our postcard-swapping.

Most Greek houses were small, with a walled garden or yard in the middle. The house was made of sun-dried mud brick. Mud houses crumbled away in a few years, and had to rebuild. The principal materials of Greek Architecture were wood, used for support and roof beams; unbaked brick for walls; limestone and marbles for columns and walls; terracotta for roof tiles; and metals fro decorative details.
