It’s 8:30 on a Sunday morning, but the residents of Molyvos are up and ready for action. It’s “Lets do it Greece” day and along with thousands of other villages around Greece, we are all ready for a good spring clean of the village. Split into groups, armed with tools and our high visibility vests, we head off to cut down overgrown vegetation and collect rubbish.
The forecast had promised sunshine through high cloud. Someone forgot the high cloud and the day turned very sunny and hot. The day was most productive as many areas of the village were cleared.
I really do wish that I had taken a ‘before’ photograph to show you the difference. However, I didn’t so you will just have to use your imagination.
This very pretty ‘street’ on the left was lined by weeds that grew to 1 metre high in places. Once we had strimmed, cut and pulled there was only one thing left to do! Two worn out brooms and four worn out sweepers later and we have transformed it into the vision of beauty you now see.
As a reward for our hard work we are allowed to retire to the forest area for a well deserved drink and a souvlaki lunch.
We have enjoyed ourselves so much that we are doing it again! So if you are in the Molyvos area on Wednesday morning at 8:00 am….come and meet us at the school to join the fun!!!
