|Bee hives in the shade of an oak in the Pedi Valley. That is Profiti Ilias in the background.|

|The view from my office balcony this morning after the rain.|
|They don't make padlocks like this anymore.|

There are quite a few new shops and enterprises opening up on the island this year and browsers will find more interesting and artisanal gifts to take home as souvenirs. I'll be taking photographs as I go about my errands in the course of the week to share with you on Friday.
There is a big nationwide strike scheduled for tomorrow, mainly affecting the major ports, railways and public services. At this stage there is no mention of air traffic controllers being involved. Please keep an eye on our travel blog http://symivisitor-accommodation.com/blog/ and also http://livingingreece.gr/strikes/ for updates and information if you are visiting Greece at this time.
Have a good week.
