Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

Maud, when you return to your Cretan home, I am sure that you will be met with the same warmth that usually greets you. I think at the beginning of our Greek lockdown, there was some upset with ‘foreigners’. (Perhaps is the what the email refers to?) These were people who arrived on the cusp of the ...

Weather websites

I am curious to know as to what weather sites you rely on. I have listed in my favourites The weather channel, (Chania) which frustatingly I have to convert every time from F to C. It defaults every time to F. I know that as a rough rule of thumb one doubles C and adds to 30 to get F ( easier for my...

Re: A New Case

Margarita I hope the patient has a speedy recovery.
Clio I agree with you and Margarita re hygiene. I still naively think of it as the ‘new’ hospital.The staff are wonderful, but the building itself showing neglect. The cleaning of it is, or was when I was there, quite poor.

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

Yes Warwick and your post touches on something else that bothers me greatly. Polio, TB, Smallpox etc all but eradicated. When we get a vaccine for Covid-19. I hope that is mandatory to vaccinate. These anti vaxxers don’t seem to realise that it is because of vaccines that the diseases have been stop...

Re: Britons urged to travel to Greece this summer

Ros 21- re guns...In the early 1990s I rented a small place in a small village. I was quite remote. A foreign man rented the place next to me.

Re: Britons urged to travel to Greece this summer

Before the days of Internet I was always flummoxed and perplexed by reports in newspapers, especially local ones. One would read about Mr &Mrs Smith of Acacia Ave, aged 80 and 82 who were robbed. Followed quite often with the physical ailments of the pair and therefore such ‘easy’ targets. Even ...
