Another from the disused, almost secret, American base at Gournes (Γούρνες) Crete. A part of the complex that I had never entered. I think it was where they generated the power for the base. Much of the equipment had been removed but the very heavy stuff, although stripped of wire etc, was still there. Fortunately, this place hadn't been used as a toilet like most places here, but, as you can see it has its own set of hazards. Not the place to be wandering backwards with a camera in hand. Anyway here is an aerial view. You can clearly see the masts in the centre of the photo and the remainder of the base surrounding it.

Oh! Every night I'm dreaming of you
We're weaving through a crowded room
I ask you to be my best friend too
And then I lose you.
