A trip to west Lesvos

West Lesvos, that is. Here are some photos from a trip to Agra and Eressos in the late winter. Agra is one of the villages that I teach English in every Thursday. It is a rich, mountain village that easily lives off the land surrounding it. The people are unique and simple, my kiddos there are pure and lively! It is very common here on the island to encounter a heard of sheep in the road, a man on a donkey, a dozen stray cats or dogs, and/or especially the warm sun shining down on you as you drive on an abandoned road.

Hiking in Lesvos

Last+Import+ +03 Hiking in Lesvos

Recently we have been hiking on the weekends. There are two hiking clubs here and they go every Sunday, rain or shine. And as hard-core as that sounds, it may or may not surprise you to learn that it was a very relaxing hike. The hiking was a total of about 6-7 hours, and that included about an hour or so picnic. There were about 35 of us total (this time it was both groups together) and we pretty much stayed in a casual line. We all chit-chatted but I never really connected or made any new friends. At one point, we stopped to let the rest of the slower hikers catch up, but while we waited for half an hour there was a handful of “hikers” that decided it was a great smoke break time! Isn’t this ridiculous… I could not get over the fact that they actually lit up while so called “intense” exercising! I was even more baffled when one guy was arguing how smoking has never truly been proven to be harmful to your health.
