Re: For All You Conspiracy Theorists Out There

Ι don't use any assistants but makes me wonder if they are switched on anyway to listen without being activated?

Re: For All You Conspiracy Theorists Out There

Funnily enough had a phone call to my sister a couple of weeks ago, my mobile English SIM to her UK landline. She was telling me about something she'd bought which turned out to be the wrong size. Her mistake. Jokingly we said we would be getting adverts popping up on FB about it (we are always joki...

Re: Mobile Phone Coverage - Gavdos?

Went there a couple of years ago. Vodafone worked perfectly. Given the location, I think all communications would be spot on! :D

Re: Weather websites

Was a big fan of Weather Underground until an update about 6 months ago which was unnecessarily fussy and difficult to read. Plus the app developed a virus so It was uninstalled. It's rating went down from around 4.5 to 1.8 on Playstore and now it's disappeared. Someone told me about meteoblue I'm v...

Latest info. Looks like a straight swap from blue and beige permits to biometric passes without having to apply with yards of paperwork again!! Yippee

Re: Entry/Exit to Greece post Brexit

Just as a matter of curiosity, I believe we will have to go to the aliens/ immigration office to get biometric passes eventually. I just wondered where the aliens office is in Chania?

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

There have been 19 cases in Crete in 4 months. All but 2 imported from Athens or via Athens I think. Lots of tracking, testing and follow up occured. No connected cases in Crete as a result of the 19 positives. Of course there might be asymptomatic people around but AT THE MOMENT no active cases or ...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

I agree & disagree with you Warwick, certainly there is very little, if any, social distancing, wearing of masks etc, that I'm seeing now, even by the staff in the shops, kafenions, tavernas etc. The locals I'm talking to are mainly taking the attitude, we have no corona here now, so why bother...

Judging by the comments in response to newspaper articles on FB, there appear to be many young Greeks who still don't believe Covid is real! Bizarre! :roll:
