I should have saved at least one of yesterdays stories for today as I have very little to say. I could bleat on about my cracked rib and the discomfort but I need your sympathy so I'll save it. We could have a little chat about the competition. There is still time to have a guess and stand the chance to win a fantastic print which money could buy but there is also of course part two of the prize, being my best friend! Yes I know, you can hardly contain yourself and money can't buy that! I am yet to announce the end date because I'm not sure myself. I may let it run until after my Crete trip. I have organised a big night of prize giving with a local celebrity handing out the prizes.....it's going to be great. I will of course give you plenty of notice. So get your award outfits cleaned up ready.
I had a Greek lesson tonight, shit I really need to do some revision....I need this break to motivate me big time. My recall is all over the place I remember stuff I haven't looked at in years and yet the stuff from 5 minutes previous is gone. One of my Greek teachers did say once that it would suddenly make sense! Really! Would that be before I die or in some future life that the gods have planned for me!

Today's image is another of the series that I took on the last trip to Crete. This is the local high school in the town of Neapoli (Νεάπολη). I have previously stated I know how damn depressing the school is so I won't go on about it any more. On this occasion it was empty due to the holidays. I have previously posted one of the football pitch which was hardly fit for purpose. Well this is of the basketball court, not a lot better it has to be said but I guess kids see it differently. It has all you need a basket!
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.

Competition

You did know that there was a competition going on didn't you? No? Well get yourself back there and enter. Top prize is a print and life long friendship from me. I'm even contemplating offering a 2nd and 3rd prize. Pondering that one. There aren't many days left, I'm not sure how many but not many, so get a voting NOW!
