Re: More Agios Ioannis

Kalimera Tone, what a wonderful project, almost a little scientific work.

When you see Agios Ioannis today you can hardly believe that it once had 3 kafeneia or Livanianá had a primary school ......

Re: Photos from Agios Ioannis in the 70´s

Kalimera Tone,

"I am trying to make a web site with some text and lots of pictures about the village in the late 70s. Slow work but I might finish it sometime..."

That would be super nice, about Agios Ioannis, this extraordinary village.

Re: The upcoming Greek winter will be something like this

Kalispera Erno, the pandemic is a global problem, why shouldn't I comment on it? Of course I am not that naive and believe everything that is in the newspapers.

Already the 3rd storm in Crete within 20 days

Kalimera, already the 3rd storm in Crete within 20 days. Unfortunately, the problems are all house made. In addition to global warming, the problem on Crete is that the rainwater cannot run off, there is no sewer system. Then there is the wild and chaotic construction of buildings and streets. Every...
