      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 ...

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

      I'm not sure if I should call this accidents happen, my finest moment, or girl interrupted. As you all know I'm usually a very organized person but lately it's as if I've been brain dead. For example today I set our with no address or directions to my hotel; why? Well, why the hell not. Clearly any organizational system doesn't work in Greece so why should I even try. When you fail with your methods and systems just accept that maybe they don't have a place where ...

      ... and
      Niall was directed to a clothes shop, where the owners had a brother who let
      out rooms. The owner gave us directions to the rooms, which were at the top of
      the village so we set off up steep little lanes, and had to ask for further
      directions on the way. Fortunately Niall speaks pretty ...
