Signs of Spring are evident in the fields around Ithaca, with wild flowers and almond blossoms decorating the valleys and hills.

The Stavros Square is empty. There were hopes the Childrens' Carnival, postponed last Sunday due to bad weather, may be taking place today, but a community decision has cancelled the Carnival for this year. Full attention to the Vathy Carnival tomorrow.

The island feels abandoned today. There's a strange calm about the place, an eerie grey, illuminated only occasionally by bursts of sunshine breaking through an increasingly cloudy sky.
