Unbelievable ...

An old lady is lying in the street, she has been there over an hour. Family friends and neighbours are comforting her. It seems she has broken her hip.

We have no public service ambulance, since the driver retired. So we are waiting for a private ambulance, to move her.

Somehow she needs to get to the medical centre, then probably tonight to the mainland.

This is what happens, when the country is stripped bare of funds, no-one in the troika cares what happens next.

Welcome to the real Skiathos, not the tourist one you know so well ...


  1. So sad - do hope that she is able to get the help she needs s quickly as possible

    1. Now in Volos hospital via the ferry, with a broken hip - so sad ...
