Glad that this forum has the brains not to speculate over the bank attack in Kalives.

Enough said on the others....

..I would just like to state that I had returned home by this time and had nothing at all to do with this. Although the idea of members relocating to Crete is a rather pleasant one. :D
Seriously though, I don't know what time of day this happened, but I'm glad that no-one was physically hurt although the trauma experienced by the victims is something else.
I suppose that this is just another sign of the times. :D
Usually you never ever see a policeman in the village (apart from when they are looking for illegal workers in the autumn) but this year on a few occasions we saw two Landcruisers travelling through the village together, with several officers in them, at various times of the day. They were even present in the village at 03.00 one morning. (and don't even think of asking how I know!!!!!!) B)
If you look like your passport picture....you probably need the holiday!

Not worried about how you knew DaveW, more concerned that you remembered :D :D something like "Lights are on but no-one at home" springs to mind" !!

i know this may sound horrible, but i thought it was quite amusing the way the whole thing went down.
everything was stolen, and they went *POOF* in midair. no one was hurt, but a few people are a whole lot richer. was it right ? no. was it crafty? good enough for hollywooooooooood! B)

I can see I'm asking the wrong question, but what is all this about?

Some weeks/months (?) ago there was an incident in Kalives where a bank cash machine (hole in the wall) was stolen in circumstances that were, I think, a first for Crete, but common in other countries. The event drew all sorts of comment.
