Well now you come to mention it ................ I think the closure is to do with the state of cleanliness, but you are right about the other danger. About 5 years ago I took a Dimos official to look at the perilously dangerous overhanging rocks near the harbour in Almyrida and pointed out that all it would take is for one tourist to be injured, or worst, killed, before the Dimos would find itself in deep trouble for not taking care of its own property (i.e. by failing to deliberately cause a rockfall which would enable the removal of the dangerous boulders in question). Needless to say, nothing happened. The mayor of Apokoronas is always keen to tell the foreigners that the assistance of the foreigners is always welcome in order to show the locals how to handle various things (litter, recycling, road repairs etc) but the word hasn't filtered down to the workforce. The impression I have gained from my contacts with the council over the last 6 years or so is that with one notable exception, what we say goes in one ear and out of the other. Just about everything the Apokoronas Environment Group has brought before the council has been greeted with polite silence. Bob.
