It’s all Greek to Me…and I am smiling!

I’m lying in my air conditioned villa…okay, apartment at the Kaloni Village near Skala Kaloni. It’s been a warm morning of exploration, grocery shopping and deciphering signs and labels.

Typecasting? Sheesh!

Oh, this one is also a Flyniki.com plane but it has one more inch of legroom, so I’m now feeling a bit more human, […]
