      ... they spend the next 45 minutes getting mixed together and heated. After that they will separate the olive oil off the top watery mash. The oil is weighed and the remaining skin and seed extract becomes a brown mixture used to feed livestock. Out of 42 bags we had 2,000 Kg of olives that produced 318 liters of oil.

      was fine. While we were a lunching a couple arrived on bicycles, wearing
      serious cycling gear, and with no big packs or panniers. They were not young
