      In north Greece near the city of Thessaloniki lies the autonomous
      monastic state of Athos also called the Holly mountain
      It is some kind of a Christian Orthodox Vatican inhabitant by monks
      It has borders,Women are banned.It is also called the Madonnas vinyard
      It was founded by Byzantine emperors more than a 1000 years ago and
      traditionally even today pays no taxes not even for distillation
      Some male visitors are entering and stay there
      The monks give you shelter ,share their food ,wine and tsipouro,and
      never make questions
      Among the visitors Putin of Russia,Prince Charles who comes every
      year and paints .
      So this is a unique place where distillation is free,There are no
      women and you are near God.
      I had the opportunity to visit it once
      I salute you all
      George
