A Sad Day For Symi

A Sad Day For Symi

No long blog today, no attempt at humour or book sales, just the sad and tragic news that George Kalodoukas, the ‘father of tourism’ on Symi was killed in a road accident on Wednesday. I know no other details apart from that, but the news is out there on several Greek news websites that may contain more. I am just uploading one photo today, an image of the island that has lost a driving force behind many businesses and ventures. Our thoughts are with his family.
