The island falls quieter still as visitors leave and only a few arrive for the end of the season, but the weather is holding. Today’s photos come from a trip to Yialos on Wednesday for the usual things, post office, bank, collect a courier delivery, pharmacy… Actually, I was very impressed with the pharmacy – as I always am with both of them. I was after some anti-inflammatories for a shoulder injury, or ‘anti-inflammables’ as Neil calls them, but the pharmacist told me that I shouldn’t take them because I also take something to slow my heart rate and the anti-inflams can cause high blood pressure. The thing is, I didn’t need to offer the BP tablet info, she already knew I take them. I know I always buy them from there but only once per month and with all the other customers they have… I wish my memory was that good.
Meanwhile, back in the village yesterday… After work I went for a walk, it was around 7.30, up to the monastery and back again, took a few photos and came home just in time to meet our landlord and the electrician who needed to check our fuses as there was a problem with the power downstairs. I knew this; I’d turned it off ages ago. There’s no-one living down there (luckily, as they’d have a noisy time with us walking about overhead, the TV and so on – it’s not that we’re noisy, but it’s very thin floor/ceiling), but after an air con unit was put in and it rained, our electrics kept blowing. The only thing that stopped it was flicking a switch on the fuse box that didn’t work any of our lights or sockets. It must have operated downstairs. So, that was sorted out, or not as it’s going to be fixed ‘avrio’, but as it makes no never mind to us up here, I’m not worried.
And that’s my chat/news for today.
