My Messinia

Stuck in traffic on a balcony

Gargalianoi is named the balcony of Messinia as it soars over the olive tree valley on an abrupt mount.

So here I am standing on this very lovely balcony deliberately stuck in traffic….something I was wishing for all winter long.

There is just so much to observe, especially on a day like this one…rainless and therefore good for harvesting…when the traffic grows dense in the afternoon with producers taking their crop to olive mills.

 

Some were taking a break and conversing…dsc_0111psotv…some alone with a small load…dsc_0146cotv…some doing acrobatics…dsc_0201psotv…some looking for their ownerdsc_0192otvsome in christmas mood…dsc_0091psotv…some loaded with sacks of olives and one reclining friend… dsc_0101otv…and then these same ones leaving the olives and the friend behind…and smoking a well deserved cigarettedsc_0149cotv…some with supplies dsc_0141cotv…some with peopledsc_0162cotv…some heading towards Gargalianoi to another olive mill…dsc_0135otv…and some taking the result of the all this commotion far away from Gargalianoi and the olive tree valley…to unknown lands…dsc_0208otv

I would love to hear from you!
