Vitsa, Zagori: The Country Life



After days of torrential rainstorms, thunder and lightning, a sunny day. Attracted by the symphony of cows' bells of a herd of seventy cattle (including one bull) belonging to Spyros Loutsaris, who also keeps some goats and sheep, I went to listen, and chatted to Spyros, who was making sure they didn't wander up the cobbled path into the village. Lakis Papadimitriou then joined us for a few minutes; he's a saintly, hard-working farmer who keeps chickens and sheep. We try to buy fresh eggs from him, whenever we can. That's the life (when it's not pouring with rain).

Not in a hurry to move aside!
