      I just left Panos' farm this morning.

      The farm is really beautiful, and Panos looks like an old greek Taoist. The son of Lao Tzu and Hera.

      I could not convince him to accept any offer for the time I stayed there. Ate his food and used his place. He explained me in detail how to make seed balls. Also extra informations, and how to adapt all this to my local conditions. Then when I left he gave me some seeds and asked me to sow them(, please). This simple act changed everything so now it looked like I was making him a favor. Hiding the biggest favor he has been doing for me those days.

      Please go. He is willing to teach, and has things to teach.
