THANK YOU FOR YOUR HOSPITALITY
Rain has come. Many people, for different reasons, around the world they feel sadness when the rain covers the sky and deforms their day. In Amorgos that is a reason for a party.
Amorgos after an earthquake in 50’s has lost the surface and the undersurface water source. The rivers of Amorgos had dry or they are now really small as is Parianos River.
That had deform the mountain and made earth really thirsty. That also made the agricultural life more difficult. Amorgos is already a difficult place for agriculture. It was one more reason to make many people move to the mainland and leave Amorgos earth with less people and more goats to fight dryness.
People have always to take care for their families. And some of the historical periods of Greece made that a really difficult task. Anyway Amorgos one more time left to be with less people.
The global climate made Amorgos even thirstier. Until three years ago and for the last 30 years, rain has become less and less. The rain was also coming as storms and the water was linking the soil out of earth’s surface. It was also a big disaster and really sad to see the brown sea after the storm.
But there are three years now that rain is coming to us like a sprayer. The earth is drinking water in small amounts and that can humidify the soil blanket of Amorgos earth. As a result that year the lawns and shrubs where green until the end of July.
Today is the second day of a beautiful rain in Amorgos.
And that makes us really happy.
Cheers Amorgos we wish you good green days.
