“We did it” Greece

Let's Do ItIt’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.lets_do_it_2

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.

Lets do it GreeceThis 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!!!

Please share with your friends.

About Robin

We started visiting Lesvos such a long time ago we can't remember when. We simply fell in love with the island in general and Molyvos in particular. In 2005 we bought some land and tried to manage the building of our house from the UK. Holidays became site visits and our house was [mostly] completed in 2007. In 2009 we sold up in the UK and moved to Molyvos. This is now our home and we count ourselves amongst the luckiest of the lucky. I am a member of the Molyvos Tourist Association, providing photographs for their brochures and general publicity. Most of my time is spent on activities to encourage tourism or taking photographs of one of the most beautiful places on earth. I also produce calendars and sell them on-line through Lesvos Calendars. Please visit and have a look. You can also see more of my photographs on my  Robin Sanders Photography website.
