I see one case near Agios Stefanos on the Pineza live map of confirmed cases.

Re: The Way We Were

I'm surprised he managed to stop short of calling the locals peasants in his patronising manner. Bet the taverna's were cheap then though.

Re: Green

We noticed quite a few roads where the edges had been washed away and plenty evidence of temporary repairs but it looked so vibrant compared to normal. I looked at photos I had taken in the past near Saktouria and the difference is night and day in terms of colour - the old picture brown, the new on...

Green

I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Crete, and although we have been there early in the season before I can't remember it ever having been so green. This was in the south of the island and it was beautiful to see so much colour compared to the more natural brown shades we're used to. I supp...

Re: The Will of the People

Isn't indicative voting the same instrument that Labour used to get the wrong Milliband as leader?

The right honourable member for the 18th century is now saying May's deal is better than no Brexit. Could we see another MV tomorrow with the tories united?

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

As an ex smoker who now vapes it's interesting to look at things from both sides as it were. My wife still smokes and at our hotel in Crete I would accompany my wife outside when she went for a smoke, whereas you can vape indoors. The owners of the hotel smoked indoors naturally enough. I get people...

Re: The Storm and the Gorge

It's not much longer of a route and I've been informed by the car rental company that even if Britain crashes out and plague, pestilence and famine ensue, my British licence is still accepted in Greece - result!

We have a week booked in Plakias next month so I take it we will have to take the long way down through Mirthios.

Re: Mosquitos

We have just returned from a holiday in Sissi and the mosquitoes were the worst we have ever encountered in Crete. Both my wife and I were bitten on several occasions and we're not normally bothered by them. Our granddaughter was plagued by them which spoiled things a bit for her. We tried all the u...

Re: Yannis: The Return

I would have thought that Draghi was a lot worse for the Greek economy than someone who told the truth - that Greece could not afford the repayments. Little, if anything has changed in this regard and yet Varoufakis is still scorned by some. I don't think he'd be much use in a political sense as the...
