I'm in Platanes (Nr Rythemnon) and i've arranged to see our favourite mediator Dinny so if any of you that live there are also available for a few raki's and a catch up of the Island i would be honoured, any members of this site on holiday at the same time also welcome. send me a pm and we'll tie up with dates.

We'll also be in Crete those two weeks, but travelling about. We'll be staying in Matala for the first few days and then touring the south-east. Have you decided when/where you're meeting Dinny? If you post details on arrangements, we'll try to make it.

This sounds like a great idea but we will have been and gone by then so you will have to drink a raki for us.

Will it be an engagement party?????????

On the other hand who will be in Crete 20th April to 7th May????

Our plans are to travel around as well Pam, as i want to show Linda why crete is so special, i have arranged to see dinny on the 21st May in Pitsidia, we can make it a party as i have no problem staying over (in case the raki proves too much), so i suppose this is an invite to all who can make it.....................Yvonne i'm sorry you won't be there, but will have a drink or two on your behalf.

Just suggested to Santo that we could pass the evening in Matala, so we'll only have to carry him up a few stairs to a room over the bar in case five years of absence from raki has made him forget about the effect! :rolleyes:

Dinny it might be worth mentioning you have connections that could provide 5 rooms if anyone else is interested in staying over.

Well, according to my Calendar 21st is a Sunday. However, it doesn't really matter, we are travelling independently so can be flexible. I'm really looking forward to this, it'll be great meeting people that I feel I've got to know through this site. Oh well, must get on with some work now, rather than dreaming about Crete.

Santo,
I was wrong about the day. If you could make it on the 20th, it would be more convenient for me.

Hi all,

needless to say, I would have loved to be with you for this momentous gathering, but I shall be with you in spirit (we are never out of Raki here)!

Have a great time, Henry.

Can someone decide the date place and time for this party. Sounds good. I will try to attend. Is Dinny the official organizer?

Oh, I'm just back from some work and find I am organising something! That'll be a real challenge, I'm usually so unorganised that I had to move to Crete to find a fitting place for my way of life! :P

So, Saturday 20th of May it is. Whoever comes early in the afternoon: drinks on the terrace in Pitsidia at my house? Meeting in Matala at 20.00 hrs (Greekish) at the Zafiria Internet Cafe, dinner in Matala, and raki at the bar afterwards? I'm arranging a room for Santo & Linda just over the bar with a wake-up view to the sea. Anyone else needs accomodation?

Will this be OK as far as "organising" is concerned? :P

Dinny, that's absolutely fine, though will need more detailed directions for your house but plenty of time for that. Anything you would like us to bring for you from England?
