Vaccination on the island has gone so well for the over 60s that now anyone over 18 can register and get the vaccine. I got my jab last week and K got his a few weeks ago. We got the astrazeneca, others got the pfizer. Depends which list you were on.
The villagers across on the mainland are getting vaccinated at the same rate. Small communities and islands like ours will be fully vaccinated, and covid free we hope despite the rumours that the vaccine changes your DNA or implants you with a microchip. As most are aware, the govt can get far more info about you by following your facebook or instagram account.
A lot of islands are now covid free and preparing for a busy summer season. On the smaller islands, fewer than 1,000 residents, everyone is involved in the tourist season and you're guaranteed the warmest of welcomes and enjoyment of laid back greek island life. Good weather, blue seas and long hours eating healthy mediterranean food with local wines and beer, greek music and dancing.
Sounds like a darn advertisement!
Archaeological sites have all re-opened. Small groups are allowed in, wearing masks. As far as I know that only applies for open-air sites, not museums. You can come to Poros and vist our ancient temple site any time. It is never closed and it's free. You can come and dance naked at dawn if you want to, as long as you wear a mask. After ouzo and octopus anything can happen.
Photo of the day, this beautiful 'hedge' of divine smelling purple flowers. I don't know what it is . Lilac perhaps? I pass it on many of my walks. The flowers are always full of buzzing bumblebees.
