Holy Week - Palm Sunday ...

A glorious sunny day ...

The church was very busy, today the locals attended in great numbers, leaving the church at 10am carrying sprigs of freshly picked bay leaf to take home.

Later I went to the airport to pick up one of our distinguished readers of the blog ...

Malcolm is here for his first Pasca on the island. When I went to the airport the weather was turning darker and more chilly, he was rather pleased too habing had a ride on the ATR-72 rather than the usual DASH


Whisked into town we passed goats grazing at the entrance to the airport - You would not get that at Heathrow Gatwick of JFK.

I noticed that the airport improvements had further trailed off, and someone appeared to have made off with the cement mixer - either that or it had dissapeared into the swamp where it had last stood.

Later update:

A quick change and after ablutions he attended his welcome meeting in Taverna O'Batis.

All I can say is a good time was had by all, including a learned friend who attended - despite still shaking like a leaf from Saturdays stunning get together up in the hills.

Malcolm was sent to bed at 00:15am, after leaving Christos with some tidying up before he could go to bed too ...



PS the meze with the tsipouro was amazing, Eleni really is one of the best chefs on the island ...
