Re: Driving

Depending on what the final Brexit agreement contains UK drivers may require an IDP to hire in the EU after the UK leaves the EU. Warwick And one wonders what, after Brexit, UK hirers will want from those of us with Greek licences? I guess that unless they demand IDP's from every European country, ...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

Somewhat off-topic, but may interest some of our older readers. Had always been under the impression that for insurance purposes, as long as one held a valid driving licence, one could drive any vehicle covered by the licence. In other words, it is the vehicle that is insured, not the person. Discov...

Eh? Does that mean that my Greek licence which was renewed last in 2016 has to be renewed again before the due date in 2019?

Re: Don't pay electricty bills at post office

My house is near Sitia, Bob. Maybe it's a different water company. Tim That explains it Tim. Apokoronas probably isn't unique in its inability to accept payment through a bank be it online or variable direct debit, but my original post explained that it is an Apokoronas problem for us! Interestingl...

Olive oil, vinegar and now house-wine

Some time ago some idiots in Brussells decided it would be a good idea to make taverna owners stop using their own olive oil (because allegedly customers were being fobbed off with rubbish) and the same with vinegar. Sealed bottles of both supplied to diners was deemed the answer. After a year or tw...

Re: Don't pay electricty bills at post office

Am assuming that Tim and Glenn B both live in the Apokoronas areas. What you say is news to me. Will investigate a bit further, but within the last 12 months the Apokoronas water authorities at Vrysses and Vamos both said we have to pay in cash. No electronic payments. Bob.

Interesting that you pay water bills on-line. Apokoronas still behind the times on this one. Cash at the town halls/KEP offices only. Bob.

Re: postal service

As far as I can tell, Kostas will be delivering mail to the Vamos area villages until the end of May. This seems to be the norm now - wait until the end of the month and then continue again for another month. Bob.

Re: avacados - help please

Pity about the sugar problem John. Sliced in half with stone removed leaves a sizeable hole in each half. Fill the hole with a couple of teaspoons of brown sugar topped up with dark rum; makes a lovely aloholic dessert! Bob.
