Olives in brine

olives in brine

A village scene on a very wet day; olives in brine. The jars are missing their lids, so my uncles placed an aged (albino) eggplant on top of one and a piece of (rotting) wood on the other to keep away insects and dust.

The mayhem is continuing, now that there is no control anywhere. I don't have a licence to use my husband's hunting rifles, but I have the water pressure unit ready on hand to protect what I can.

Answers to yesterday's quiz:
The fashion store is operated by Chinese businesspeople - wherever we see red lanterns hanging outside a store all over Greece, this is a sign that cheap clothes are being sold here by Chinese people.
On the left-hand side is a TAVERNA, while the green door has a sign on it for the Greek Language Society; it is also the premises of a "philological preparatory school" which helps high school students in their exams.
