... socialising and catching up with each other. The people we have spoken to are really friendly and have a good chat to you. The elderly ladies in the street usually give you a big smile and say 'Kalimera'.
We took the little red car and headed off South to look at some temple ruins and some of the beaches. Demeter's Temple ruins were from 500BC with an amazing backdrop of mountains.
We were the only people there and I think we only saw about ...
... apples, read as 'heavily pock-marked' into a bag for us, then dried figs, and pomegranates, despite us saying, no thanks, no more.

Were entertained by half a dozen cats playing about restaurant - wouldn't happen at home. Shared garlic bread, Naxos salad, lamb souvlaki and baklava for desert. Another great meal to finish an enjoyable day. Can life really be this good???
