Re: Beach webcam down

There is another webcam on the harbour of Sfakia (Meteocam) which has been down for several weeks now. It was always a pleasure to look each day at what was happening in this beautiful part of the world which is about 3000 kms from where we live in northern Europe. Hope Meteocam gets around to fixin...

Re: Samaria

Maybe there's building work going on in Gavdos and Agia Roumeli. Most of the material has to be transported by boat. They load the cement trucks, gravel trucks and building material onto the boat. Or maybe the region is starting to get a flux of winter tourists LOL.

Re: A corner of Crete in Australia

This is yet another confirmation of the character and generosity of the Grete people. The service men from Australia (20,000 kms from Crete) who, without hesitation, left their families and travelled to the other side of the world to help the Crete people fight against the invaders, duly noted the g...

Re: Search for a solution for garbage in Paleochora, Sfakia and Gavdos

Thanks for this article on rubbish disposal. Re: Gavdos in the article .... It talks about a "Landfill Site XADA" in Gavdos and goes on to say that the restoration of the site in Gavdos has taken place. That is, done and finished. Does this mean that the rubbish in Gavdos won't have to be ...

Re: Rubbish in Gavdos 2016 and 2017.

I read your comment Erno and yes I agree with what you say. I will do all I can in the hope that the Mayor of Gavdos is informed of the situation before I start filling in forms to government bodies etc. I sent, last week an e-mail to the Mayor at the e-mail address you gave me (gellygavdos@yahoo.gr...

Re: Rubbish in Gavdos 2016 and 2017.

No I'm going to send a letter with the photos. My way of thinking is that a letter will be on her desk and she'll have to file it or do something about it. And maybe some other people who look at her desk or deal with her incoming mail will have a chance to see the photos. With an e-mail, it can get...
