Re: Coming home .

Our adopted village - Koukounara, above Kissamos - has several derelict properties that the locals describe as belonging to Turkish people (muslims) who were 'relocated' in early20th century. The properties are untouched since those times. Has anyone read 'Birds Without Wings' by Louis de Berniers? ...

Re: DEH Electricity Company

We pay DEH by direct debit. Is it safe to assume that the discount for prompt payment has been applied to the bill?

Can I ask what was the total mileage? How much did you allow for overnight stops? How was the weather?
