Re: An uncontrolled fire threatens homes in Vrysses

Here in France, our thoughts are with you and especially the people who are in danger.
Unfortunately, there is very little we can do because of the distance but we are thinking of you and hope that life will get back to normal very quickly.

Re: Stayover Tax

Re: 20 Tunnels proposed for new Northern highway in Crete

As I am not from Crete I ask the question........is this seen as a good thing or a bad thing by the people in Crete?
