Photo Article: Frigana slashing at the Greek Hovel part 2 - Lightning stops play

To be struck by lightning at the Greek Hovel once is, perhaps, understandable but twice would look like carelessness. You may remember how, six minutes into THIS PODCAST the hovel was indeed struck but I soldiered on anyway. However, I'd rather not repeat the experience.

A Sunday Morning by the church in Koroni, Greece

I could not sleep for reasons that I shall discuss later so was up at the crack of dawn leaving the Mrs and Joshua snoring loudly in our hotel room. We are in Koroni, a pretty little sea port around the coast from Kalamata, going away from the Mani. The stated reason is to visit the parents of the husband of the sister of the Mrs, Stavros & Stavroula. It is the latter who taught me everything I know about the art of goat milking.

The view from my office in Greece

I am tapping away by the quayside in Koroni in southern Greece. And a small fishing boat has just pulled in with its catch. Oooooh catching a swordfish to sell for a living, how degrading say the Bulletin Board morons. The fish is magnificent and will be eaten fresh today. How wonderful.
