Re: Lockdown Lifted

Well spotted , that statue is Eric Morecambe and it is on the sea front at Morecambe I used to live near there in Lancaster before we moved to Crete.
And yes I don't think it's wise to end the lockdown ... I think we should wait until more people have been vaccinated ..

Re: AIR COOLING FANS

I also don't like the dryness and noise of air con and fans , but ventilation and insolation and double glazing works for me ... this house faces South, so when it's very hot I keep the South facing doors and windows closed and the North facing door and widows open. When we did the new roof we did 5...

And then when I got them for the biometric permit, I had the photos done and went of for a coffee while he printed ...

Re: Withdrawal agreement and residence

Yeah , years ago when I got my first beige permit ...the local police in Sitia didn't really see why I wanted one , and so didn't really know what I needed to provide to get it.. She said "why do you want this ?...we are all Europeans now "...

Re: Anyone exited about starlink internet?

The OTE RURAL set up that we have in this village will work without a 4G signal to boost it so I don't know how it connects .I guess they must have looped us in to the network, before this we were a spur of a spur that did not go anywhere ..They installed a large steel box in the next village with t...

Re: Roll out of the vaccine in greece

A quick question to them that know ....I'm going for my first shot of Pfizer tomorrow ... I read a thing the other day about people who test positive without seeming to having any symptoms of the virus... so do they give you a covid test before the vaccine ?
