Strollers 1st hike in Marathasa, 3 May

On Sunday 3 May the Cyprus Strollers conducted their first ever hike in the Marathasa area. The trail took place on the hills above the village of Gerakies, famous for its production of the local sweet soutzioukkos, made from grape juice and almonds. We climbed as high as 1100 m altitude and concluded with a picnic at Xerargaka picnic site. Apart from the usual pleasures, we encountered a chameleon and passed by almond trees bearing their fresh fruit. Compliments to Amanda, Despina and Alex for the photos.
