August full moon today!

In the afternoon we drive towards PLATANA, which is a coastal little village about 4 km before Kymi.

It is supposed to be a tourist resort but the beach is not so good here.

Most of the times the waters are rough. During winter the waves are so high that they reach out in the street.

There are many studios on the upper side of the coastal road and people from Athens prefer this spot here because it is not very far from the capital.

We are enjoying our dinner overlooking the full moon tonight.

The food in this restaurant is not only better but much cheaper as well, and it is the one next to the Restaurant we were sitting last night.  It is 9 pm and the restaurant is already full.  Everyone wants to see the full August Moon which is really bright and huge tonight.

I remember some years back …..about 20 friends, we went to a nearby beach at 7 pm with guitars and food, and at 12 midnight sharp we got in the sea.  The moon was so bright and we had such fun…..!! 

Our trip to Metohi, and Hiliadou, were really nice today, and the only thing I want to see before leaving Kymi is to visit the Women's Co cooperate shop where they make cocoon designs which they frame 

and hang on walls.

I am not fond of them myself, however it is interesting work and they are made only here in Kymi.  It is something local, so I cannot miss it. There is a kiosk not far from where we are sitting and I see lights and people in, so we visit it after we finish lunch.

Besides cocoon frames, the ladies here sell other local products that they themselves make. 

I am glad that there are no customers the time I take the video.  Even the lady who is here has gone out because the kiosk is really very small.  Watch the small video and see what I mean.
