Friday Photos from Neil

Friday Photos from Neil

We have some of Neil’s photos to round off the week. He was over on Rhodes on Wednesday, making sure he was fit to dive (he is) as he’s planning to take a dive training day with Blue Lagoon as soon as he can organise it. I was at home and looking after the bar for a while — a much more mundane day.

The news from Greece now is that we no longer have to wear masks in public, but we do inside shops and crowded places, busses, I guess and other places where it’s sensible to do so. Other restrictions have been eased too. It’s easy to get over to Greece now regarding tests and so on, but the problem seems to be for people getting back and having to quarantine, especially if you live in the UK. I think it’s a scheme to get you to put your money into the post-Brexit debt-pit, but that’s my own little conspiracy theory. If you can come, though, you’re spoiled for choice with ferry crossings, and you can now get your pre-going home tests done on the island. If you do, please do the version where you pay and don’t sponge off our free medical service. Thanks. Have a good weekend, and now some photos.
