Meltemi ...

The Meltemi winds started at 6am ...

Clear skies, clear air and clear roads. Where are they all? Still a warm wind and it's shifting the dust in little twisters. Mini tornadoes passing by on the road.

The wind has silenced the cicadas. Clearly they do not like the breeze, and have retreated somewhere out of the draught.

Some Greek pensioners from the mainland have set up a table next to me. They like the shade, and have quite a vociferous game of cards on the go. It's lasted five hours. Quite interesting antics, very competitive. They were very appreciative, when I moved the sunshade for them ...

Gave someone a lift, felt something brush my leg. Sadly not the charming Italian lady in the passenger seat but a huge spider. Luckily she'd did not see it either ...

Hello to the Scandies, many thanks to Pelle & Marti for the supplies. You know how to make SWMBO happy. Last night I put a smile on another ladies face. We were out with friends, at Syraino. The lady concerned has had a tough time, and is emerging into a happier period of her life. So I bought her the "famous cake" for what is missing in her life ...

It was the poshest swearing that I have heard - well since that time with the chalet girl, and dropping her off the balcony into a huge snowdrift ...

Midnight update:

Not only is it still windy, it's tipping it down outside ...
