Greek Tragedy

We cycled past the first evidence of Greece's catastrophic 2007 forest fires. Rumour quite strongly suggests that they were intentionally set in order to clear the land for development. I've driven through countryside burned by fire many times, but the feeling that hung over these charred trees was truly morbid. There is something devastating about seeing human arrogance and greed so plainly displayed.
