Re: Flying Crete - UK

...You surely cant think we can all stay at home until next year when the vaccine might save us. What everybody else does is up to them but apart from going out to get food and drink I can stay at home pretty much indefinitely if I feel the need to do so.

Re: ELTA Parcel deliveries - Apokoronas

Thanks for the update, poor man is going to be swamped at Christmas! I wonder if this will be a permanent measure.

I had just read this the other day about new postcodes to be introduced.

Re: Traffic lights Megala Horafia

I know Warwick, I know...I was trying really hard to be objective! As a Greek friend of mine often likes to quote ‘ logic is a good Greek word, but many Greeks are missing the logic chip’ Glad to hear you passed through without difficulty Bob.

Re: Covid -links to sites with statistics
