As for me, I’m going to be off for a while from today. Tomorrow night I’m going up to Athens for a few days, arriving back early next Wednesday morning. I have a few things to do before then, so won’t be online tomorrow, but all being well, will be with you again towards the end of next week. Before I go, though, I thought you might like to know that the island is buzzing, everywhere seems lively and full, busy and doing well, as September is a popular month for visitors. It was very busy in the square last night and in the tavernas, which sounds to me like good news for everyone. I’m off now, back soon.
