Is it a bird, no it's one of those motorised kite things. This guy has been flying over Poros for years taking photos. Rumours are he is a man to be reckoned with. You can see a lot from up there. Big plant-ations for instance.
Off to pick his olives, ladder in hand
The daily backgammon wars continue
The lottery seller in his shield. Those plastic shields are not enough protection. If you don't want a fine you must wear a mask underneath, as he does
The ambulance taking a corona-case off one of the yachts.
Poros has not been corona-free. A few warnings would have been desirable. We were all getting a bit too lax in our precautions. The Mayor of the town across the strait has announced a virus case at the High School. Meanwhile over all the country there are more than 2,000 cases daily, and rising. We have just has more restrictions announced and the country has been divided into two zones, the red zones and the rest of the country.
The greater Athens area is in the 'war' zone but this time they have excluded the Saronic islands, that's us. As from Tuesday all over Greece masks must be worn inside and out. All business stops from midnight to 5am. In the 'war' zones all cafes, bars, tavernas will be closed. This will continue till 1st Deceember.
Looks like our Christmas will be similar to our easter. Each family on its own.
