On our first night we stayed with the very extended family of Sophialeano. We were in a mud rondovel with a thatched roof. Each room on the family plot is a separate buiding.
There is a hut for us, one for the children, a separate sitting room, kitchen, toilet/shower etc.
Welcome greeting consists of bread, tea and butter.
Our guide has gone MIA and we cannot communicate with our hosts. it is a bit disconcerting.
We enjoy a supper of squash, greens, curried style chicken, rice, a tomato sauce and amazing sweet beans.
We are very tired from our hike.
We figure that we travels ~24 km with the hills. The hike was hard and fairly treacherous at times with 60 degree slopes in some places and goat paths that overlooked cliffs into the sea. This is certainly not for recreational hikers.
At night the sky was amazing. With little light pollution, the stars were unbelievably bright.
Overall an amazing experience.
