but if there's one thing i'm looking forward to, apart from the obvious sun sea and sand, it's sitting on my balcony, smoking a smelly cigar listening to the crickets, being warm at midnight, hearing greek words shouted, picking up the odd word, guessing at the meaning, feeling totally at home
there's more, there's being treated like a friend by a person who doesn't know you but because you made the effort to learn how to say thank you and they go out of their way to help, saying good morning and being greeted like an old friend ( even tho you've said it like a two year old)
may be it's because we're similar people in a way, island mentality, i suspect the the kiwi's feel the same, i know how many of them love crete for how they helped their (our) lads but then just found they loved the place anyway
just some of my thoughts before i go
kali nikta, or for yanni as he's in bed and will see this tomorrow kali mera! efaristo

Now my simple pleasure is using my favourite website to make me feel that little bit near to "home". I just wish he had taken the time to read the great mozzie thread (I have read it all several times and still lol lots!!) still I expect he will remember to refill the electric thingy and buy autan - but probably only after he is bitten. Shame!! Do I sound like a nasty vindictive home alone sort of person?? (No need to answer that one!)

i wouldn't worry too much about him Yvonne, there won't be many mossies in the pub opps oh no he'll be too busy painting and repairing won't he? :roll:
it will be a simple but very enjoyable pleasure i'm sure to be meeting Tim and Paul, also my other friends who don't use t'internet
it is like going home!
