the party

end of another season in paliomylos. the spring is here, the building of the workshop (still missing the tools and furniture) is finished and… a very good friend that left his mark for ever in this project hit the road again, three seasons after his accidental arrival. so as a farewell to valentin, celebration for the complete workshop, the spring and the end of the hunting season (paliomylos can again be a peaceful place) we organised a beautiful two day gathering of good friends and family. almost two years after the beginning of this project it was about time to thank, with an event, my family for the continuous practical but also psychological support they all give to paliomylos. So, many thanks foremost to my parents, Alexandra and Nicos, they are the base for this effort, to my uncle Antonis and Stefanos, grandfather John, Lia, Marina, my cousins and off course Thanasis, a very good, childhood friend that is always there when we need his help.

the workshop finished with a fine detail. the rendering of the internal walls, apart from the usual horseshit and clay, it included this time, hair from all the paliomylos residents (including cats and dogs), and some culinary spices like curcuma for the color.

apart from that we continue with the pruning of the olives, cutting the broken from the snow, pine trees for timber

this winter was one to remember, we had a second coming of the snow early in february and since then long consecutive rainy days that remind me of london… a lot of water, that will help out in the heat of the summer.
