Music off at 3am ...

The police have cracked down on noise ...

Must have found the batteries for the decibel machine ...

All music outside must cease at 3am in the village. It seems the 'rock till village the 6am' music thump has come to an end - at least for now.

3am - No Noise ..
The clubs on club strip were forced to move indoors, so relocated quietly to the bars on the old harbour. The last two years the noise has rocked the village until six in the morning. Bars often booming out the beat, even after the last customer has gone home.

There has been a lot of opposition from the bar owners, and their staff. Who barricaded the police inside their office yesterday to protest at the action. Not least the bar owners who are loosing income now in high season. Then again, they probably do not live in town, so are not trying to sleep, as the party goes on.

Skiathos is changing, its trying to encourage the younger audience, but for now they do not have anywhere to go after 3am. Bananistas is gone, Banana is upmarket, Perhaps Xanemos will be the new club area in the future.

So is it just a token gesture or are the rules to be strictly enforced?

Well we shall see, but for now if the doors are open, then the music must cease at 3am ...

Blood red moon ...

Plenty of photos about of last nights lunar eclipse. Nikos Paschalis has the best one that I have seen, and after all he has the best kit, being the islands astronomer ...

PS: Please read the previous blog, Skiathos is not just cheap Mythos and where to eat next. There are some lovely people on the island, like Giannoula whose first thought was to help others.
