OFF THE RECORD #1
A. visited today. We went to an unbelievably beautiful secret gorge. The excuse was to see if there was water left after the heatwave. There was very little. But the vegetation was lush. No goats there. It seems that nowadays goats stick around roads. Anyway, on D.T.’s request, inside that gorge A. took this photo of me «people in landscape” style.
But we said that it would be exclusively for my blog and that none of these takes would be released anywhere else.
Tomorrow is Eleni’s home cleaning day.
Not funny. _____________________________________
============= Confidential Update – June 2008 =============
In this blog we learn that researchers have been looking in vain for traces of otters in Ikaria. The blogger comments that «Otter poo (and consequently the Otter itself) is more than likely a myth«…

Well, maybe it isn’t. Maybe those young students were looking the wrong way. To find an otter, you have to behave like an otter. Wear very little and walk silently, slowly and smoothly upstream inside a lost ravine. And it’s not only an otter that you might meet there. Ikaria is an Arc of Noah. It’s enough to know where to look. The otter in Ikaria is not a myth. This photo taken with my underwater chemical camera, proves it.

Of course it’s not funny to clean the house for me. After so many people who have been there after me, it takes a small female Hercules like you to clean the mess. And you know I can’t deal with mice. But you, tamer of foes, can. I even think you might even enjoy the task! Anyway you know how grateful I will be. And of course after me, Sideraki.

Ναι, λίγο κοκκίνησε. Τι να κάνουμε; Για να βγουν καλές φωτογραφίες χρειάζεται φως. Και το φως βγαίνει από τον ήλιο. Ο οποίος ως γνωστόν τον Ιούλιο ΚΑΙΕΙ! (κι ας είχα βάλει τα σούπερ ματζούνια μου) Πάντως ο φωτογράφος και ο Θωμάς κάηκαν χειρότερα! χα χα χουχα!..

Do you know you have a soulsister from Finland?
She is younger and less experienced than you and she comes from a conservative country where people don’t easily get rid of the clothes like you to do impossible wild river treks. Get in touch and tell her a few of your tricks and tips. Maybe she discovers your otter. We need a second photo as a proof!

I would like to meet her. We would have a lot to talk about. I promise to keep my clothes on – lol – :-))

I gave it a good thought and decided that we shouldn’t be afraid of poachers. We are moving on…

Gooood! I was telling you since the begining. Take me, for exapmple. If there were poachers, they would have captured and put me in a cage since ages. I would make numbers in a circus or zoo. And there are no poachers who work for embalmers either. The hateful practice to kill and embalm unusual animals to decorate with their corpses houses and restaurants (!) is extinct -even in Crete where it used to be the rule in the past. Please move on :o)
