Re: Kalyves Gym?

There's a pretty good gym in Kalyves about 250 metres along the road to Armenoi, on the left above the shops next to the bike shop and opposite the mini-market.

Re: IKA and over 65's

I suggest you look at the specific rules and intention of the EHIC card on the UK government web site. It is intended to provide medical assistance for emergency treatment (and some existing conditions, I think) for a limited period of time and is not comparable with IKA cover nor that provided by t...

Re: Mosquitoes

Of course Big Pharma hasn't completely failed; what a stupid assumption to read into a post but it has done a few dodgy things over the years as well as many good ones. ".... pills and potions that alleviate symptoms and hold out the possibility of prolonging life." The chart seems to demo...

Re: Mosquitoes

I suspect, by and large, that Big Pharma doesn't really want to find cures for anything. They make far more money with pills and potions that alleviate symptoms and hold out the possibility of prolonging life. Actually cure things and they're reducing their future markets.

Re: Flying to Chania at Easter

Despite all the criticism of Ryanair I've flown with them several times and 'Er Indoors even more frequently and not only because they're the only airline travelling the route. Certainly they were convenient when we needed to go to Bristol, flying direct from Xania but we've flown other routes on wh...

Been eating stamnagathi since '96. One of my favourite foods, especially the wild variety.

Re: Salted capers and pomegranate molasses

You'll almost certainly be introduced to yet more obscure ingredients that you've never heard of, many of them tasty.

Re: Salted capers and pomegranate molasses

I will be going to Kalyves later this week and could ask for you? While in Kalyves it might also be worth asking in 1000+1 Flavours, directly opposite Piraeus bank. They have a very wide range of unusual foodstuffs. If Giannis the owner doesn't stock them he may be able to suggest a source. Frankly...

Re: How do I get to Chania at Xmas?

You may well be right Warwick. It is now within four days of exactly one year since that trip and it was booked about two weeks before travel. Since then I've had no reason to look at Ryanair site.

Re: How do I get to Chania at Xmas?

Carolina, you're correct and the memory isn't merely old unless you're counting in archaeological time. 'Er Indoors reminded me that we did, indeed, spend longer than three hours in Athens. Left Xania ridiculously early to Athens, dumped bags at airport hotel and spent day in Athens (mainly @ Acropo...

Re: Reading Recomendations for Maud

I never had the questionable pleasure of meeting the author but I remember feeling I''d like to smack him .... Oh, I do wish you had been with us the day that we met him, Clio. I disagree. I'd have felt embarrassed to have landed him on anyone else although embarrassment may have been overcome by r...

Re: Reading Recomendations for Maud

Warwick, I think you have the wrong book there, The one about the man obsessed with Icarus was called something like 'Flying with Icarus' I've just traced the book referred to by Margarita. It's 'Falling for Icarus' by Rory MacLean, currently on Amazon in paperback at £12.99. We met MacLean while h...
