Not far away

My heart and mind keep coming back to what is happening just miles from this island....
(photo from the the Al Jazeera site)

a few minutes ago I read this quote from one of the few voices able
to come out of Libya at the moment (as you probably know the internet for the most part is being blocked and foreign journalist are not allowed in the country).

(From the BBC World news live feed on the Middle East and North African unrest)
11:40 pm 21st Feb.
Mohamed from Tripoli in Libya sent this: "President Clinton said that the one thing he regretted during his presidency was that he didn't intervene in Rwanda. Will President Obama regret not intervening in Libya... You can stop this so please don't stand and watch us fade away."

His words send chills down my spine, I hope someone from the outside does something 
(besides verbally condemn the voilence) soon.

Fancy a walk?

Am taking you along with us again, hope you don't mind. 
A small morning hike.

This time- Northward.
Following the remains of a road, past an old man and his horse training for what looks like the charriot races, some friendly dogs and a church tucked up among the cliffs ( a place near Mtahleb) 
the wild winds howling away.
The raging rain storm having left the land looking a bit shaken. 

A cheery yellow dog leading us along (notice that little cluster of houses below).

Down the hill past blooming almond trees. 
Tall wispy fennel plants and groves of lemon trees heavy with fruit.
Down through what seemed to be a ghost village, of 7 or 8  buildings, only one looked like there may be someone living in it.... the others had been abandoned and left to the elements... 

Then past a tiny cared for vineyard

to a place where a smal stream trickled by and tadpoles were spotted

through something like a bamboo jungle

past banana trees!

and pretty little flowers 
(wish I knew their name)

**That yellow dog spent the whole morning with us and then jumped in the car between the kids, as if he belonged there.  Felt cruel to drive off and leave him behind watching us, 
such a happy cheerful fellow. 

Back home.
Windblown and rosy cheeked, date scones and a pot of hot tea.
