Re: Kalo Paska

We had a couple of gunshots yesterday, but as we have a VIP here at the moment, the police are up and down the lane monitoring things. I guess they are worried about an assassination attempt! At least it made for a quiet time on the ‘explosions’ front.

Do you live in Rodakino?

Re: Highway Roadworks near Aptera

Went through from Chania about mid-day and police were sorting it out. Yes, I passed it yesterday going East around noon time and the queue was long but moving fast, very well managed by two cops. 6 minutes delay. On the way back (around 20.00) to my surprise I didn't have to stop at all, waved rig...

Re: Problem with / avoid Aegean Airline code-share flights

I think that sometimes it's better to use a travel agent. At least they'll know who to phone.

Re: Cigarette smoke issue

I do know of a few certain tavernas/restaurants in Chania town that really do stick to the so called official no smoking policy, Just made me think that it would be nice if we could make a collaborative list (within a new thread possibly) of restaurants and cafés that stick to the no smoking rules....

Re: We have moved in!

I think Wind also offer a WiFi dongle that effectively gives Internet connectivity through the mobile network. Worth looking into. Indeed! For some reason I was under the impression that they'd gone out of business but obviously not so. Same would appply though: you need to test it where you are go...

Re: We have moved in!

I am trying to set up WiFi in my villa

Do you mean that you are trying to get an internet connection? If considering mobile then it's either Vodafone or Cosmote and how well either works is entirely dependent on where you are located. So you'll need to test both or ask your neighbours.

Re: cremation in Greece

Just read that too. 13 years after the law was passed. Looks like it could happen before we die.

I haven't been myself but I am pretty sure that it is. The road is damaged but not cut off.

Re: Omalos

Yes there is snow. You can drive as far as the first tavernas. As of yesterday the road had not been cleared further up. As you guess they need bulldozers in other areas at the moment.

Re: Athens Airport --the long walk

Had this last month coming from Chania and going to catch an Easyjet flight. And the same on return. The walk is a good 10 minutes (and i am a fast walker so double that if you're slow) so must be about one kilometer.
