One hour later and we were all in Taverna Alexandros enjoying a catch up. Junior clearly enjoying the Thomas pop up book that Margaret had brought as a Birthday present.

We had a nod and a polite hello from Mr Plomaritis - The mayor as he passed by. (Obviously not had time to read my recent blog yet then ?)

We were visited by one of the 'Newly' Deaf Dumb and 'Think we are stupid' - Yes we really want the pistol shaped cigarette lighter, and glowing lamp that he placed in front of junior. Who looking up from Thomas, was checking out the range for a direct hit with a spoon full of tsatsiki.

So after a lovely meal, had been put to bed. It was all too soon a time to say goodbye for now, as our lovely jet lagged Margaret, headed off to a well earned rest at the Meltemi ...
