Alternative Means Of Communication. Kourounes (Κουρούνες, Κρήτη) Crete

You can see this cross for miles at night. It is lit and at the top of a mountain, I have been trying to find out how you get to it for years. Finally this year I stumbled up some mountain track and after climbing for what seemed like for ever I arrived at it. A mass of wires and aerials - all surrounding a tiny church which I would imagine was there long before there was any need to transmit using radio waves - prayer was enough, I guess. I suppose they light this cross because they can - the power for the transmitters has brought power for the church and so the cross. My measurements may be way off, but, my GPS told me I was 5,800 feet up and it felt like it! The nearest village is that of Kourounes (Κουρούνες). For those with an interest here is an aerial view of the location.

Ruination day
And the sky was red
I went back to work
And back to bed
And the iceberg broke
And the Okies fled
And the Great Emancipator
Took a bullet in the back of the head...
