The Great Walls of Kythera Book Project:
Kythera has some extraordinary walls, and good pictures of them would make a fascinating book. If you have some wonderful Kytherian wall pictures then submit them to this category. In 2011 we'll select the best of them to go into a book. Anyone whose picture appears in the book will get 3 free copies and of course be named as the author.
