Young buffalo shepherds posing with their puppies. There are 1600 (water)buffalos around lake Kerkini. The population has increased from 600 animals in 1990 due to demand for buffalo meat and milk. The population in 1950 was 75000!

Βάβδος

Η Βάβδος στην ορεινή Χαλκιδική σε κοντινή απόσταση από τη Θεσσαλονίκη, αποτελεί μια πολύ καλή επιλογή για απόδραση στο βουνό. Το κτήμα Νταράκα προσφέρει καλό φαγητό σε πολύ όμορφο περιβάλλον μέσα στο δάσος, με πολύ μεγάλο κήπο. Η περιοχή προσφέρεται για πεζοπορικές περιηγήσεις ενώ υπάρχουν και τα μεταλλεία Βάβδου, γνωστά για φωτογραφικές εξορμήσεις.
