Rain all Day (and Tomorrow)

A look back at Mesochorio on Karpathos. The first part was here.

The terraces are green all the year around thanks to the springs under the church.

Fruit orchards of every description grow here; pomegranates, persimmons, ugly fruit, lemons and oranges.









Farther away there are olive groves and vineyards.

Even the mastic tree does well here, with its odd growths on the buds (click on image).
