Engisprettur ß KrÝt - Grasshoppers on Creta (Crete)

Dagana 17.-28 september vorum vi­ ElÝn ß KrÝt. Var ■a­ bŠ­i ßhugaver­ og yndisleg fer­.

F÷studaginn 21. sept. fˇrum vi­ ßsamt nokkrum ═slendingum ß matrei­slunßmskei­ ß břlinu Kissamos skammt utan vi­ Chania, sem er nŠststŠrsta borg eyjarinnar. Var ■ar haldi­ matrei­slunßmskei­ sem var Ý raun Ý ■vÝ fˇlgi­ a­ vi­ tˇkum ■ßtt Ý undirb˙ningnum.
Ůegar verkefnin ur­u of flˇkin kom Úg mÚr fyrir skammt frß břlinu og hljˇ­rita­i engisprettur.
MßltÝ­in var una­sleg. Břli­ er sjßlfbŠrt a­ mestu leyti og hefur veri­ Ý eigu s÷mu fj÷lskyldu Ý 100 ßr.
Me­fylgjandi hljˇ­rit er samsett ˙r fjˇrum hljˇ­ritum. Styrkurinn var hinn sami en engispretturnar voru misjafnlega hßva­asamar.
MŠlt er me­ gˇ­um heyrnartˇlum og hafi­ ■au ekki of hßtt stillt.

In English
My wife and I spent our time on the island of Creta (Crete) on sept 17-28 this year.
On September 21 We went together with some Icelanders to the Kissamos farm close to the town of Chania in north-west Crete for a cooking course.
The farm has been in the same family for 100 years and the environment is wonderful.
The agriculture there is mostly sustainable.

When things got too complicated I went to the garden recording the grasshoppers.
Enjoy the listening.
Good headphones recommended. Be careful with your ears. The recording is made of several recordings.

Hljˇ­lßtir rafbÝlar - Quiet ev-cars

Ůegar rafbÝlar tˇku a­ berast hinga­ til lands fyrir nokkrum ßrum kv÷rtu­u řmsir vegfarendur um a­ erfitt vŠri a­ vara sig ß ■eim vegna ■ess hve ■eir voru hljˇ­lßtir. Einkum ˇtta­ist blint og sjˇnskert fˇlk ■ß.

═ me­fylgjandi hljˇ­skrß heyrist ■egar Kia Soul 2017 er eki­ inn Ý bÝlsk˙r. MŠlt er me­ gˇ­um heyrnartˇlum.

á═ seinna hljˇ­ritinu heyrist Kia Soul eki­ afturßbak ˙t ˙r bÝlsk˙rnum. Tvenns konar a­v÷runarhljˇ­ heyrast: BakmyndavÚl skynjar ■ann sem hljˇ­ritar og sÝ­an er a­v÷runarhljˇ­i­ ■egar bÝlnum er eki­ afturßbak.

IN ENGLISH

When ev-cars were introduced to Iceland some years a go many blind and visually impaired pedestrians found it difficult to spot them. Now things have changed. A low engine-sound is produced when they are driving under 30 km/h. Els the sound of the tyres is supposed to do.

Most o them have also a sound when they are driven backwards.

The attached recording was made when a Kia Soul EV 2017 was taken to the garage. Headphones recommended.

áThe second recording is made when the car was leaving the garage. The back camera is also heard as well as the back sound.
