Thursday, Dec. 8, 2011 - Kalyves.

Last evening Ilios, Zeus, Ukkonen, and the mightiest of them all, Ukko had a confrontation :) Ofcourse the mightiest god won. Today we had a perfect day of clear skies and sunshine.

In the morning our dear Nikos came over with a delivery of 1000 kg of olive wood for our tzaki.

All day clear skies !

Olle and Anna over for a meal, and for the extraordinary talk. Plus they had glgi and ginger coocies with them. And an excellent bottle of wine. It all started to taste and smell like Christmas!

Later in the evening we said goodbyes to Jaska, Eila, Ilkka and Liia who returned to Finland after an eight-week stay in Kalyves. Miss you all!

Friday, Dec. 9, 2011 - Kalyves

Kiti and Hannu worked together at the Kalyves Primary School to set up the photo exhibition Ice & Snow for tomorrow's opening.

In the evening to Mythos with hopes of enjoying their tasty fried liver.


The weather aftercast for today and the previous night in Kalyves:
A clear, sunny day with some white clouds. No wind to speak of but air is now flowing from the north (from the sea), and it means that the temperature dropped rapidly after sunset. Afternoon high temperature +19.1C. Last night's low +8.6C.
