I almost didn't post tonight. I have a good reason, it's late and I have been out with an old friend. Danny, a mate of mine from about 5 years ago. We met up for a few beers. We had a great time, 5 years of stuff to catch up on. Good to know that he still makes me laugh like a drain. A great few hours each telling stories. Amazing to know much has changed in our lives and yet nothing has changed. A great evening, late home, late eating. Bloody late everything! So glad that I have a few bits and pieces ready to go! Thanks Dan, catch up with you soon.

OK, tonight photo is another from the most recent trip to Crete. A lot of the south of the island is covered with what appears to be miles and miles of green houses. Precious few are glass covered, the majority are covered in plastic....when you look down on the area from the mountains it is amazing...it's as if a giant mirror has been installed to reflect the sun. Many of them are in a poor state of repair as this photo is witness too. I have included an aerial shot of the area to show you the extent of plastic coverage! The grey oblong areas are all greenhouses. When you drive past mile after mile of them there appears to be very little activity! I must be getting up way too late...the heat in them must be terrible, best worked in the cool of the morning which I don't do very well.

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!
