Re: Last section of road to Sfakia widened

George D. has sent me some more photos of ongoing road improvements in Sfakia ( taken from the Mayor's facebook page) - the road in Frangokastello is being resurfaced now. When we finally get back to Sfakia, it will be interesting to see all the changes after two years absence! IMG_0089.JPG IMG_0088...

Last section of road to Sfakia widened

Re: Wonderful documentary about Sfakia in first international screening at RAI 3

Yes, a truly beautiful and gentle documentary of Sfakian life. So nice to see familiar faces and places, and we long to get back there!

Re: Below zero in Sfakia this morning

The temperatures are still cold there, so they must be very hardy people!

Here are some more photos from Giannis Fasoulis, taken yesterday in Imbros and on the way back.

Re: Below zero in Sfakia this morning

Here are some photos (from Askifou, Imbros, Aradena) that Giannis Fasoulis just sent me. He says it's 8C in Sfakia now but was freezing this morning.

Re: A day time-lapse of the southern Levka-Ori filmed from Anopolis in October 2020.

Thanks so much for posting this! It was almost hypnotic watching the clouds form and dance over the mountains, and the sunlight play through them onto the plateau and slopes. Nice to have a flock of sheep make an appearance later, and a surprisingly clear sky at the end. Oh, to be there now!

Re: Striated Shorline Rock Formation, Agios Pavlos

Here's a brief explanation of the striation from my brother-in-law, who is a retired geo-morphologist/geographer: Looks like thinly bedded limestone on its side (i.e. age sequence is youngest to oldest near to far or vice versa) and then some faulting – you can see a slight displacement of structure...

I am unable to access your photos - do you need to give permission in general for this site, or is it just me?
