So here we are in April and what have we been up to? Due to travel restrictions, we haven’t been able to host volunteers this year until now, with the arrival of Joe who is from the Lebanon, lives in the US and studying environmental studies in Germany! He is strong and makes light of lifting and cutting. So far we have tidied up the Sendoukia Adventure trail and around the Mikalakis Water Mill, the short path behind Episkopi and the old main route out of town – Aloupi to Kangelia/Raches. This trail has really been abused over the years; dug up by OTE and not put back so cement was dumped here and there, dug up by the water company and a pipe unprofessionally installed leaving a huge gully and holes everywhere plus the inevitable bulldozer damage resulting in mounds of soil to be sermounted. Very heavy work with lots of brambles and full sun. It does have lovely views of the Stafilos valley though.
Where did the time go?

Yup. Where indeed did the time go??? It is 2021. I still have the bottle (https://www.islandwalking.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/DSC02388-1365×2048.jpg) of spring water back from when I visited the island the first time. Why, you might ask, did I keep hold of some freakin’ water in a bottle? Because I immediately knew something magical had happened, that is why.
