After a long, loooong journey and getting lost in the mountains a few times, the convoy arrived in Prespes lake area to shoot this movie. It’s so quiet and cold. The hotel is cozAy but without gym or wifi. The owner, Mrs Toula, let me pick out the room I wanted, which she then furnished with rugs.

The following day was a day off, so early this morning I ventured out to investigate matters.

The shore is made up of shells, crushed ones, humongous ones and strange, transparent ones. I will come back here tomorrow to collect a whole bunch.

There are frogs, snakes, cows, goats, ducks, geese, many species of birds and fish, all of which I encountered within the first few hours here and I look forward to the bears, foxes and wolves that I was told roam free in the area.
