Last minute repairs in Marathonas

Last weekend we went to Spithari.org in Marathonas to put up one of the two wind turbines that we will be going to see on Friday. Two of the coils had managed to short themselves out, so Kostas put on his scrubs and did some keyhole surgery to put it right.

Unfortunately we got soaked in torrential rain putting the turbine back up and to make things even worse, when we flipped the brake switch, nothing happened. You win some, you lose some.
