Sifis Kouris, the old fisherman whose family owns the Faros café, passed away this afternoon. Our thoughts are with all his family.

Incoming email from Jean Jacques:

I like in my own langage to express to all the Family and friends of Sifis in Sfakia my message of deep sentiments to them, Sifis was close to me so many years with Kostas Kouris in the port and the village, each day and sorry we disturbed him some long nights in the kafenions….

In hommage of Sifis and my emotion to his family I send 3 pictures directly now by instinct,
