Starting to Feel the Pressure

I am always amazed at how each season in Cyprus goes the same way. When I first get to the island, everything is nice and relaxed and I look forward to how much work I will be able to accomplish. Then, when there is less than two weeks left, a bit of anxiety sets in and I realize that my list of goals is not going to be completely checked off, that there is simply not enough time between now and when I leave the island to finish everything. That feeling hit me yesterday. I also realize that this feeling is only going to get worse over the next few days. I have 11 days before I leave the island, and only 9 of them are days I can do work. I enjoy working on Cyprus, but the limitation to my research is that the actual hands-on work with my material is limited to the one month I can spend in Cyprus each year. Anything I forget to collect (weight, color, number, a particular level and pass, etc.) will have to wait until next year for me to collect.

As with all Tsakiris potato chips, they were crisp and crunchy. The oregano flavor was subdued and could have been stronger –  ******(6). Tsakaris chips have been a pleasant surprise this summer, maybe I will try their ketchup and mustard flavor tomorrow.
