Re: Kalyves Post Office

Interesting website that you highlighted to get postcode Warwick. I was a bit puzzled at 73007 for Vrysses, but we used to be Vamos 73008 before Vamos ceased to operate. No-one has suggested we change, and we continue to use 73008 as our postcode. Does this mean we should change it to 73007?? We hav...

Re: Kalyves Post Office

Lots of confusion. Kalyves post office now telling people no mail is coming or going from the UK, yet the ELTA press release of 30th March still shows Great Britain as being OK. Only thing to say is last Friday, no mail in Kokkino Horio for anyone from anywhere except Greece. Checking again tomorrow...

Re: FULL Lockdown Monday 23 March 6a.m. in Greece

...And in her first full day in the job new Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner basically tells the public do what you want, not what the government advise you to do ... I agree with the comment on Calderwood. If I am backing into my drive and I clip the gatepost then that is a mistake, a human erro...

Re: FULL Lockdown Monday 23 March 6a.m. in Greece

Warwick. You say towards the end of your post " I am sure there are economists who can make a pure economic case that continuing as normal, letting everybody catch it and then let it run its course is the most cost effective solution and there are certainly some advisors in Downing Street who s...

Re: Coronavirus, what happens next

Personally I found the video highly unconvincing considering what we know about how it is spreading. Where test, trace, isolate regimes have been carried out effectively you can trace the spread of the disease from one person to another. What are those people doing? Carrying sprays full of poison, ...

Re: FULL Lockdown Monday 23 March 6a.m. in Greece

I think the Greek government's response to the Corona virus threat, compared to other European governments, including the UK, has been absolutely first class. I know we sometimes disparage our host's ability to organise and execute, but I believe their swift and decisive actions will prove to have ...

Apparently you can send more than one code in the same SMS. As in "2 3 6 Name Address" Has been done by others not me. And I've always had instant responses too. Andrew That's what we did on day one with our stone-age mobile, in fact we put both names as well a 3 activities, and the answe...

Re: Any hardware stores doing home deliveries?

My car is in need of a mechanical repair - replacement of brake discs and pads - advised after a pre-KTEO check. The dealer's workshop is (legitimately) open and, having acquired the necessary components, the owner has informed me that the work can be done tomorrow (Friday). According to him the co...

Re: CoronaVirus now confirmed on Crete

They would have no checks, being Nationals who are 'merely' returning home. Bob. Not as simple since the lockdown. To get on a flight to Chania (and I assume the same would apply to ferries) you need to show that you are resident of Crete. Being a Greek national is not enough. You need to be reside...

Re: CoronaVirus now confirmed on Crete

Well if you're going to fine anyone it may as well be UK pensioners, as they are probably the only ones still getting an income, and if you are going to go UK pensioner hunting Apokoronas is as good a place as any. I've not been out for over a week so I am not sure what is happening round this area...
