Island work

just in case someone needs a rest on the way to Kymi

the Skyrian pony

lava pillows

one of the breathtaking views we had from the mountain

I just got back from Skyros Island, where I had some work to do, mainly with the Skyrian pony that we are trying to protect. But I also visited the mountain, in the south part of the island which is a Natura 2000 site, where the Greek church (that owns some of the most beautiful places in this country...) is trying to develop a terrible, huge, wind farm project (and you all know that I am in favor of wind energy) that will destroy the unique landscape but also disturb the ecosystem, including the horses and some bird populations.

any petitions we can sign? apparently some VIP people are land owners on the island. you probably know them already. just buying OIKO once a month on Saturdays makes one crazy with what is going on.
