day 11 .... the most incredible discovery

the days are flying by ....
today I am "customising" my bike so I can carry my mono rail camera and tripod around ... :D



at the end of the day just as it started raining (again) , Uccio the Geometra from the village and his wife Antonella, came over to take me to a secret olive grove... 
we went on a merry-go-round tour to find the owner ...who would then direct us to the actual property ...
wowowowoow brilliant!!!!
an Olive so enormous 4 people can fit inside it ....
another that has a kind of natural armchair inside !!!


these are the absolutely best trees I have ever seen and as soon as my film arrives...I will be a permanent fixture at this secret grove !!!
(I bought the last 2 boxes of 5x4" TMAX film in the USA and it is in transit now ...still searching for more, maybe in Germany I can find some...)

I seem to be continually dodging torrential downpours of rain .... 

and they say it never rains in the south ...
hmmmmm...
