      ... Vulture centre, to the plateau. It was just as the guide book said only the great expanse is covered in two feet of snow, in places there are drifts that are four feet deep. As we drove around the 20 villages on the plateau the villagers were digging out vehicles that were completely submerged in the snow, the only way you could tell that they were there was by the strange dome shape the snow had made on them ...

      Today I made it out to the farm, where I will spend the next bit of time, being a farmhand. The owner is Kostos and his wife will be the main ones hosting.

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