Photographer's Note

It was close to have central collision with this jackass, the reason was my "small" lens :-) I am jocking.
Yes, this is also daily life in the village Olympos at
Karpathos island, in the Dodecanese group of islands, lies between Rhodes and Crete. The village of Olympos, where was not connected to the south of the island by asphalt road until 1998. Most tourists visit the village on day trips from the capital and life in Olympos continues as it has done for hundreds of years.
Olympos may originally have been the place where villagers from Vurgunda and Tristomo in the north fled from pirate attacks. The village would originally have not been visible from the sea. The people of northern Karpathos are different from those in the south and their dialect retains many words and expressions from the Doric age (3000 years ago).
