Monastery, Sikinos island

There is one single nun at the small monastery of the remote island of Sikinos in the Cyclades, Aegean sea, Greece. She is from another Balkan country, and has studied dentistry. Only 250 residents live in the island of Sikinos in the winter. The driver of the island's only bus said that during the winter she helps the locals when they had problems with their teeth.
