Pitch Preparations Were In Hand In Neapoli (Νεάπολη, Κρήτη) Crete.

We had a rather nice free range chicken last week from which I made some chicken stock at the tail end of last week and over the weekend I made a huge batch of leek and potato soup....why am I telling you this I hear you cry...well it's what I ate tonight...yummy! Yes it was very yummy. Yes I know it was made with the bones and parts of a dead bird but it was a free range bird that ran around and pecked at stuff and probably had a name like Harriet or Steve if it was a boy...I think that they tend to be girls. The veg was all grown locally....I guess I could go on to say that I'm doing my bit for this or that but I'll be honest with you, as long as the world keeps spinning for the time I'm here then I don't much care after that. I do my bit where I can but I think we are heading for destruction anyway....I just have a feeling it might take a bit longer than 50 years....anyway a bit of global warming might make the summers of my twilight years a tad warmer on the bones! Eating a happy chicken and local veg just tastes good as well. Oh God I'm heading for hate mail now....it's no good sending it, if you do I'll just re-direct it to James. He'll shout at you so don't go there!

Today's image is another of a series that I took on the last trip to Crete. This is the football pitch of the local high school in the town of Neapoli (Νεάπολη). A more depressing school I think I couldn't find....it was empty due to the holidays.....it was stark and dirty, it reminded me very much of communist East Germany. However the photos seem to present it as something else and it looks kind of pretty...perhaps it's that damn Astia making it look nice. Anyway this is one of many that will be posted eventually. For those with an interest here is an aerial shot of the school, the building can be seen in the centre of the photo. Neapoli is off to the right if you want to take a look.

OK guys the Photoblogawards have kicked in. If you have a mind to vote for people then here is a shortcut there!
