>> Friday, November 7, 2014 – live on Symi in November, Panormitis Festival, Symi traditional life., weather in November
|Heavy clouds rolling over Pedi Bay this morning.|
|A very different colour palette to Symi in the summer.|
|The grass is growing, the cyclamens are back and the moss has greened over again.|
|A typical small farm in the Pedi Valley.|
|Time to plough the pocket-handkerchief terraces so that the next rains soak in.|
|A ruined house in Chorio. The various markings are to attribute ownership.|
|A typical lane in central Chorio.|
|Pilgrims off the Blue Star, heading for the bus stop and a ride to Panormitis.|
|A stream of pilgrims, newly arrived off the Blue Star and heading for Panormitis for the big name day celebrations tomorrow. Many are carrying brooms and besems to be blessed. There will be celebrations at the other important monasteries dedicated to St Michael too - Kokkimides and Roukoniotis|
The big weather front that is currently over the Adriatic is slowly heading this way, bringing wind and rain for the weekend but also a slight rise in temperatures as the wind will be from the South East. It should be about 23 degrees centigrade midday tomorrow. Next week should be mild and sunny.
Have a good weekend.
