Re: A Story of Sfakia book

Highly recommended if anybody wants to get better understanding of Sfakia - imho.

Re: Int’l Driving Permit a must for non-EU car rental in Greece

Greek Car Rental Federation informed car rental companies that IDP is required for the drivers from non-Convention countries only. The list of Convention countries (or "contracting parties") can be seen here: http://www.unece.org/trans/conventn/legalinst_08_RTRSS_RT1968.html. If the countr...

Re: Wind parks in Crete and interconnection to the Greek System

Probable objective: to replace allegedly costly power generated by petroleum-fired thermal units with allegedly cheap power of RES backed up with electricity inflow from mainland.
