Hello Lucky,

Interesting article you wrote. It would have been even more interesting if you'd have used some more inter phrases and capitals. Also linking to telephone numbers seem to make this article more like message than a story about a nice place near Paleochora.

You could have done a thing like this e.g. to explain the beauty of it all

:rolleyes:
True is that adage: "He who yields to rule by wooden heads, becomes himself a fool."

I liked the first postings by Lucky talking about the area of Paleochora and the village of Azogires. However, I think his main purpose is to promote his business which include his cafe -restaurant plus real estate business (reference in a previous message).
As everybody knows, the purpose of this forum is informational, not promotional, so I will kindly ask Lucky to avoid more promotional messages in the future.
