#7604 Green Houses

Posted by steve on 20 April 2006 - 07:22 AM in Explore Crete

Has anyone ever tried to recycle old plastic water bottles to make plastic sheeting for greenhouses? I don't know if it would be technically possible but it would be a neat idea if it could be done.

#7603 The Raki Dictionary

Posted by steve on 20 April 2006 - 07:14 AM in Explore Crete

The trouble with learning Greek (especially the local variety) is that even if you manage to translate the words correctly the meaning behind those words is often completely different to a Cretan than it is to an English person. It's all a matter of interpretation. To try to remedy this I thought it may be helpful if we had a new type of dictionary - the Real Anglo-Kritti Interpretative Dictionary (or RAKI Dictionary for short). Below is an example entry:

Tomorrow = Avrio
English meaning: The day after today.
Kritti meaning: Any indeterminate point in the future when something may, or may not happen.

You get the idea. Any contributions to the RAKI Dictionary would be greatly appreciated. B)

All the best
