Saturday, Feby. 26th 1916

Walked out to a village near here – Portyanos. The island is very hilly and the hills are very bare, stony, with a very thin covering of grass which in summer is soon burnt up.  Even now the hills look khaki-coloured.  The country is exactly like the pictures of Palestine and the costumes worn by the natives quite Eastern.  There are practically no roads and as there are no horses or mules available walking is the only way of getting about.  There are Greek churches in all the villages.
