I am sad to report that the Koni Village has been swept off by a kretiphoon not later than june 9, thanks heavens late enough not to intercept the tourists writing here on this forum.

As it often happens, especially in the Koni Village (Koni is in fact, though many are not aware of it, an acronym for Kretiphoons ON It: K-ON-I) area, the geographical divisions of the island contributed once again to this kretiphoon, whose intensity has bewildered even the most seasoned of the weather season forecasters in Greece.
As you know Creete is divided into two parts, North and South, though a few scientists and seasonal weather forecasts experts divide it into east and west too.
These parts are very different, otherwise why dividing the island into them, doesn't it?

Now, it seems that a third axis has to be added: the up down one, as Dimitris Kavafis (1990-2078), a well known greek seasonal weather forecasters has suggested (see: "The kretiphoons: a new perspective on an old problem: verticality versus horizontality", Dimitris Kavafis, Greek National Institute Of Technology for the Seasonal Weather Forecasts in cooperation with the Usa MIT publishers, 1989).

The air on top of the Koni Village is much lighter than the air at bottom of it, which latter is subject to a higher pressure, as the well known law of Torricelli explains us, raging whirlwinds of air can develop and flung themselves upward.
The pressure was actually supposed to increase their temperature, and the height to reduce that on top of the Kreti Village, but for reasons that are still invetsigated the other way round happened (See: Dimitris Kavafis: "The Copernican revolution in Greek Weather Forecasts: why the kretiphoons develop the other way round likewise it wasn't the sun that revolved around earth", Greek National Institute Of Technology for the Seasonal Weather Forecasts in cooperation with the Usa Google publishers, 2005)

So: on june 9, exactly this happened. The fury of the inverted kretiphoon (though Kavafis strongly advocates this was fully predictable if only more persons would read him) was so diresome, that now the Koni Village got situated, by the kretiphoons pushing upward towards the zones more void of air, about 300 meters higher than it previously was.

Therefore the steep road that was already so difficult to walk is now even steeper, which makes now the Koni Village virtually unreachable by any man or woman whose legs are shorter than 1.50 meters, and the kretiphoon is still bending and furling and unfolding on top of the hill.
Flashing lightenings emerging from the deep, impenetrable clouds now sorrounding and enveloping so ominously the village, can be seen day and night, and scaring thunders gets periodically ejected from the tangle of clouds: these thunders, accordingly to Elias Santanas (1918-2014), produce a drumming that seems to recur exactly like the first 8 notes of the fifth symphony by Ludwig Van Beethoven; this slightly strange fact is going to be investigated soon too (see: "Influence of the Weather on musical temperaments", Elias Santanas, National Music Conservatory of Athens in cooperation with the st. Cecilia chorus of the National Philarmonic of Italy, 2003).

Several cruthces have been furiously ejected too from the top of the hill thus preventing the emergency units from reaching the top. About 120 members of the greek national guard have been hit and injured by these crutches that are expelled and squeezed out by the fury of the thunderstorm as projectiles and bullets.
Several jets of the Greek Army now dart in the skies (producing a sound that at times scared the tolruists who thought it was an approaching kretiphoon) and constantly strive to reach the area and penetrate it, but till now utterly unsuccessfully.

The Koni Village has been declared unreachable, and in the future only lizards will be allowed to live there. You have been the last human beings to see it!
A man attempting to emerge out of it as a survivor and immediately approached by the emergency units, was later found driven clearly morbid by the awful experiences endured in there, for he came out screaming and waving his hands grabbing sort of planks that he declared made of stone, and he was claiming he had been given a new set of Tables of the Law while in there by an heavenly voice in the thunderstorm who would have been calling him the "new Moses", and he insisted that he had to be listened to. He was declared insane and has now been confined into a sanatory, where no one knows for how long he will be kept in custody before he recovers his good senses.

Tamar, if you were in Room 810 did you speak to the Irish couple in 812?? We met them half way through the week we were there but they had just arrived so we only went out with them a couple of nights before we had to go home.

It sounds like you're talking of some kind of prison camp? Are the baracs named just by numbers from 800 and up? Were you released on parole or did you serve full time?

:wink:
