We are still in the small eastern Cyclades, now off season its very silent here. Donoussa is the most remote island and here the EU spent a lot of money. The Greeks tried to build a street from the only village(!) to Ormos Roussa, a bay at the north-east end of the island. At the top of the mountain they found out that the street couldnt continue all the way down cause it was to steep. The picture shows the end of the street at the top and down in the circled area is Ormos Roussa, nobody lives there except in the summertime, about 10 houses are there. But finally they build another street near the coastline so now you can reach Ormos Roussa on an asphalt road.

Keine Angst, wir sind (noch) nicht in die Karibik abgebogen, das ist der Strand vor dem einzigen Ort auf der Insel Koufonissi, auch hier ankern wir im Hafen zwischen den Fischern - es gibt zwar einen kleinen Hafen aber wir haben auch schon ein Motorrad gesehen ;-))
Dont worry, we are (not yet) in the caribbean, thats the beach right in front of the only village of Koufonissi island. Onotoa is on anchor in between the fishing boats, well there is a small harbour but we also saw some motorbikes here ;-))

We had our dinner only a few meters from the Boat, just a small street between us and Onotoa. On the quai there had been some cars parking and in between a motorbike. One of the cars tried to get out, touched the bike and it fell into the harbour right between our hulls. It was just good luck that nothing happend with the boat, i am sure that we wouldnt get any money from the driver or his insurance company in case of a damage!
Schaut komisch aus aber hier gibt es wirklich manchmal Nebel, bedingt durch die hohen Berge in Amorgos. Das Buswartehaeuschen ist ein guter Schattenplatz fuer die Ziegen und war auch entsprechend vollgesch.....die sind leider etwas scheu als wir hinkamen waren da sicher zehn Tiere drinnen!
Therre are very high mountains in Amorgos so its true that sometimes there is fog here.
The sheler at the bus station was used by the goats because of the good shade, when we came there had been at least ten animals inside so you can image about the smell inside.

We had a nice walk to the monastery , the only entrace is just about one meter so it was easy to protect it and its still original for over 900 years now.
