The Xeros River Flows!
The River Xeros flows into the Asprokremmos Reservoir, and when that is full, it flows right out again. So where does it go once it leaves? We decided to find out...
Beyond The Dam
We are going to start at the top of the dam, as it is looking a lot more impressive now than it was a couple of weeks ago. However, I appreciate that some of you may be sick of seeing the dam, so this picture is a taster of what is to come. We will be going from here to the sea.
This is more like it. The continuing rain has become a headache for just about everybody. However, a saving grace is that the extra rain makes the reservoir overflow look a bit more impressive.
There have been reports of fish falling over the overflow. When we were on the other side of the dam, we actually came across a couple of fishermen. Given that normally there is no water there, the fishermen can only be have been fishing for fish that have come from here.
Towards The Sea
From here you can see the new course of the Xeros River. Note also the trees on the hill to the right. I will go there once we are done here to take another picture.
Foinikas is looking a bit yellow now, so a trek will be in order. You cannot reach there by road at the moment. It is cut off.
The Stamp of Rambo
This is interesting, believe it or not. Years ago, when I used to use the London Underground, I became perplexed by the series of dates and numbers which were scrawled on some of the posters. It turns out that this was a booking system used by buskers. They would bag time slots and other buskers would know not to turn up at the same pitch at the same time. I have no idea if buskers still do that, but it was interesting to see it action. I wonder if the writing on this post is for a similar purpose. Is Rambo bagging this particular spot?
