Hi Sheila. As already said, the strike is not a national one but a local one involving many, if not most, of the lawyers in the Heraklion and Lassithi areas. Originally planned to last until the end of November, the strike was then extended until Christmas. As Latsida says, there is talk that the He...

I just wanted to give a mention to the Kosmar reps I saw working really hard to look after their customers and get them on flights home either from Chania or bussed to Heraklion - in the full knowledge (I believe) that they would not be paid and no longer had jobs!! Employees are usually the last c...

Babies

I too had Dr Theodoros Katassos deliver my last baby, a handful of years ago. Although the anti natal care at Agios Nikolaos General Hosp was something I didn't look forward to due to long queues and standing in a disorderly line to wait my turn, Dr Katassos was always cheerful and encouraging. Desp...

This is a little late as I haven't had much spare time lately, I'm afraid. Just to say that two of the named hotels in the Lassithi area, that I know of, were never actually closed down. They were given two weeks to improve their safety standards and then the inspectors returned to see if all was in...

Hi Can anyone join in or is this just a "Courgette & Courgette Brain" private line? I am tempted to tell you what to do with your courgettes but you already seem to know perfectly well! One word of warning, it is roasting over here in Crete, so beware your fragile vegetables as they ma...

Where do I begin? When I first came to Greece in 1982 I was bitten hundreds of times; my bites (as a Celt) were itchy but not festering and huge. My blonde Brummie friend was bitten mercilessly and had hundreds of weeping "lumps" all over her. I have now been resident her for many years; t...

What a scream! I watched the videos and then watched them again with two of my boys, who also thought them really funny. Thanks for highlighting the site, it's good to have an innocent chuckle now and then. This couple are so much more entertaining than so many of the highly paid, rude "celebri...

Well I'm still alive (just) to tell the tale after trying out the keep-out-of-the- emergency-lane on the national road for 8kms. It took an awful lot of determination not to pull over that inside white line to let people pass. This is dangerous stuff! Out of the four or five cars that sat on my bum...

Well the topic of the post "increase of 400% in traffice fines" is depressing. Even more daunting is the thought of having to re-learn how to drive, having driven like a semi-Cretan for over 20 years. All doom and gloom?....No, I just read the replies in this post which were both imformati...

Here in the SE we have stiffled our glee as the fluffy rain clouds brewed, then disappeared, for most of the day The most excited we got was at 7ish this evening when the outside wall was almost covered in rain drops! This year, for the first time in over 20 years, there was not a single daisy (Marg...
