The remains of an "underground" structure.
Photo taken in spring/summer 1971.
This was just outside of Potamos, near the road heading to Hora and Kapsali and the south of the island. There was a next to a commonly used "walking" track across vacant untended land, used by us, and many of the locals as a short cut from Logothetianika to Potamos. We used it to get between the house we were living in in Katsoulanika, to Potamos (not many shops in Logothetianika and none in Katsoulanika).
