I've just looked at your pictures and read the description of the loo - not for me, thank you!! One can have too much fresh air.

Caroline,

I understand that Giorgos has surgeries in Kalyves and Vrysses.

The one in Kalyves is on the Armeni Road not far from the Petrol station but on the other side of the road. There are usually dog kennels for sale outside.

I don't know where the surgery in Vrysses is.

Hello Carolina,

Could I suggest a board for people learning Greek. Maybe they could post useful links or ask advice about lessons etc.

Good Luck with the Forum.

Regards,

Margarita
