Re: Flights December - January

This summer hasn't been very hot. And Amari is quite high up so probably a fair bit cooler than the coast, especially with a meltemi (finally!) blowing.

Re: Change Of Heart?

Brian, just in case this wasn't clear to you...this forum is about living in Crete, not Brexit. You already started one thread on Brexit, do we really need a second one?

Re: DEYAAN account number

If the bank doesn't accept the payment code have you considered the possibility that you are trying to pay the wrong water authority? The list in the bank payment page is pretty long (and if you are using the English page the translations of some of these water authorities can be confusing so maybe ...

Re: Damaged telephone socket after electric storm

OTE is only responsible for the wiring to your house but not inside your house. I am nit surprised that they replaced your phone sockets free of charge because the OTE engineers can be pretty helpful but they were doing you a favour as they were not obliged to do so.

Re: Being pestered by 13888

You mention elsewhere that you are a client of Cosmote. 13888 is their service number. Have you considered that they might be calling you for a reason, maybe to tell you or ask you something that pertains to your account? Is the fact that they talk in Greek so surprising considering that you live in...
