Radovan's in Corfu, but where?

Radovan is now with us in Corfu and played hide-and-seek on this olive tree trunk. Can you find him? Better click to enlarge...Once off the trunk, Radovan was very pleased to see how the locals gather olives. When the olives are ripe, they either fall or are shaken to the ground, which has been covered with the nets you see here still rolled up. Radovan recalls the Serbian equivalent of Polish jokes, which make fun of the Montenegrins for being lazy. Rolling up the net with all the olives is definitely easier than picking by hand. (My apologies to both the Montenegrins and the Poles; nowadays I guess these jokes aren't politically correct.....)

Here's Radovan standing amidst some wild thyme we stopped to pick to take back with us. Smells soooooo good. Drop by tomorrow to continue Radovan's wild time (oh, bad pun) in Corfu.

I don't know if it's just me, but unfortunately I've been unable to enlarge majority of the images from your Greece vacation :/

Hi, Jelena! I just enlarged all three, but the second time I tried, it didn't work. I don't think it's "me," but rather the blog configurations of something. I will write to someone at citydaily today.

Thanks for pointing this out. You were the first, and I hope there aren't others.... :<(
