Hope your feet 'll do what you want them to again. But take care for the rachi for they can disorganise them again
Have you got there email address, and do you know if they send abroad?. Are the prices touristic or local?
Would love to buy some from this chap

No, not drinking it for medicinal purposes really, but tell everyone I am....
Haven't got an e-mail address, but there is a telephone number on the bottle: 2831091220
We paid 7 Euros for 250 ml so yes, tourist rates!
Quite happy to pick up their business card when I'm back in July if anyone is interested as we pop into Chania often - let me know.

Maybe I missed some info about your op. What exactly happened and what did they do to you?

So there's your incentive for getting/keeping really fit while you're healthy and mobile enough to do so.
By the way, if you need the loan of a parrot for special occasions, let me know. My friend has one. Admittedly it's an African Grey rather than the usual Macaw, but she can yell profanities quite nicely. My friend adopted her as her owner made a mess of caring for her and at first this parrot was really quiet. Then one day she accidentally flew into the window which elicited a response (from the parrot) of "oh fooking 'ell"

That's 28 euro per litre !
At the local store in our village I pay 5 euro for 1,5 litre of the finest raki. This Raki is packed in a plastic water bottle, and they make it themselves.
The 'special tastes' like honey cost 6 euro per litre.

Hope you'll do fine and must admit that Emma is a bit too anticipatory with her parrot but I think this one will do great on your shoulder
It's a Hyacinth Macaw

the medousa in plakias ( photo takem by babbi!)

I pride myself in having fairly good tastes when it comes to fine spirits and great food so when I read the comment about the cat's piss, I thought maybe I was losing my taste buds!

I still have memories of the best evenings on which (lots of) raki was served after a nice Cretan dinner.
And, very important to me, I never had a hangover from raki. And sometimes I drink a lot of raki when it's a pleasant evening.
I can't say that about other liquors.
