Another canal of many in Mylopotamos

Water travelled along a series of canals, througout Mylopotamos - ll interlinked. Water would fall from a height into a designated water mill wheel, turning the wheel, and then the stone, and hence crushing the wheat.

Mills were owned by individual families.

Those who grew wheat, but had no mills, would bring their wheat - often with great difficulty - to the mill on a designated day.

A week later - the miller would have the flour ready for "pick up".

The bell tower at Logothetianika

Due to generous contributions from the Australian-Kytherian diaspora - the bell-tower in Logothetianika has been restored.

It has not been operational for a number of decades.

Now, again, it chimes on the hour.

It can be heard from as far away as Potamos - and further afield on still day.

Decorative carving above the doorway of a very old house, opposite the church Agios Ioannis in Trifillianika. Is this a family crest? What do the symbols represent?

Tsikalaria - Family House

Tsikalaria - Cassimatis (Xeros) Family House. The basement of this house was once used to warehouse Coca Cola, Sprite and Amstel Beer as Theodoros Cassimatis used to be the distributer of these products on the Island. Now it is just used as a holiday house by the family during the summer months, like many other houses in Kythera.

Tsikalaria - Toilet at the back of a house

Toilet at the back of the "Xeros" house in Tsikalaria. The photo shows the full length of the walk to the toilet starting from the back door of the house. Imagine having to get up out of bed to go to the toilet in the middle of winter. The toilet uses an old style pit. Maybe that's why it had to be so far away from the house?

Here Lefcadio Hearn was born 27 June 1850 to Rosa Cassamatis

The house of Rosa.

It is the last house on the left as you enter the precinct of the Kastro in Hora.

(View looking down from the Kastro. The house in question is the unpainted house, at the top of the stairs, with scaffolding on the right hand side wall.)

In mid 2008 it was being renovated.
