    As I have mentioned again, the island's local economy is based on animal breeding (sheep and goats). This "glitsa" (shepherd's crook) I am holding in the picture is used by the shepherds to pull their animals back to safety when they are "trapped" on some rock and can't move. I am standing on my toes and it is still taller than me ;o)
