      ... 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.

      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 ...
