April 11 - no ferry boats

It is the first day of the summer ferry schedule, but because of rough seas further down the coast, the ferries have been cancelled. The Sweetwater boat and taxi boats are taking passengers today.

Re: Sfakian Pie fest 2020?

Markku, are you still in Sfakia? Can you give us some idea of what it's like right now - how many tourists staying there, how busy the restaurants, cafes and shops are/aren't, how the locals are coping with the situation?
