|The wild cats seem to have found something of interest in this tree outside Agios Elefterios church in Chorio.|
|A fine figure of a cockerel in the Pedi valley. Fences are no barrier to this fellow.|
|The first of the asphodels, ghostly pink flowers shimmering in the winter sun. That is a fig tree to the right.|

|The landmark oak in Lieni is rapidly losing its leaves now.|

The new wellness centre in Yialos is opening on Saturday - another facility to benefit locals and visitors alike. Apparently yoga classes will be one of the options on offer. I'll bring you more information when I have it. We already have aerobics, zumba and pilates classes available on the island.
We are still working winter hours at the office so if you need to contact us, please email us rather than phoning as there may not be anyone around to answer your phone call whereas emails we can pick up wherever Wendy and I may be.
Have a good week.
