      Off to the processor

      Today we are taking 42 bags of olive/leaves mix to the processor to make some olive oil. The family usually uses the first batch harvested for its own consumption. This is the organic batch. The process starts by dumping the bags into collectors to go up the conveyors to a vacuum to extract leaves. As they fall, they are washed and after they water is separated, they go to the grinder. After being ...

      Today we starting harvesting. The day of picking the olive off the ground are over. Today they use nets spread out over the area and the use a olive tree beater. It's a long shaft with a rotating head that has several rubber sticks that beat the tree branches and knock the olive off. What I thought was a peaceful harvest, is anything but. You need a generator to power the beaters and they hit the branches, constantly making noise and shredding the tree as olives are thrown ...

It sounds like we will start harvesting in a few ...

      Accidents Happen

      A travel blog entry by tanya.lesiuk on Oct 10, 2014

      ... we head back into town to find the local nightlife. So as I'm writing this I somehow deleted the details of the night and it's probably for the best. Here's the short and less disgusting version so I don't have to go on and re write the whole story again. Basically I remember being completely fine and then all of a sudden feeling out of it; all I recall is walking home in the direction I thought was the hotel and then meeting an Albanian man. I can laugh at it ...

      Dave was very keen to visit the Lassithi
      Plateau and Niall had not been to see that part of Crete, so we decided to
      drive there and stay the night as it is quite a long way, and took considerably
      longer than the three hours driving that we estimated, even bowling along the
      Ethniki for ...
