Re: Reading Recomendations for Maud

It is many years since I read the Winds of Crete. I have it on my bookshelf published in 1974 it is about an American and his Swedish wife who travelled around Crete for 6 years in the 60's-70's. Their travels started around Sitia in the East and they finished their stay in Plaka in the North West.

Re: Bonfires

Today O spoke to the Vamos fire brigade/police regarding a large bonfire less than a meter from my garden wall. Given that everything is tinderbox dry and there was a wind blowing.

Refugees

According to an article in 'The Greek Reporter'. The Greek government plan to build 4 Refugee Camps on Crete. These camps will be spread across Crete and they will be pre fabricated homes- a vast improvement on the tented camps at present in Greece. The building work will start in November.
