      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.

      Friday 3 October

      Fortified by our excellent breakfast, we
      decided to find the Kronios Cave, which was signposted as being quite near the village of Tzermiado. The road started alright, but
