Site seeing tour after the fire ....

3 days after the fire Jan had a tour together with Frank (owner of some olive groves and some other areas). Very much of Frank's property was destroyed by the fire. It was a depressing experience to pass through the area. After the tour Jan said that he could not recognize the area and the roads - Jan and I have been driving a lot around in that area - and he believed that he know it very well. After the vegetation is burned the area looks very different.
