Yialos On Friday

 

Yialos On Friday

As you can see from today’s photos, taken on Friday, it’s sunny and cold here on Symi at the moment. There wasn’t a lot going on in Yialos. Guys meeting to chat about fishing or something, a queue at the ATM, people just sitting and enjoying the view, some out shopping, a group or two in the cafés and bars; a standard winter day.

Over the weekend I finalised the cover for ‘The Witchling’ with the cover artist. I now need to see to the edits and corrections before preparing the files to send to the layout artist who sets the books out for me. All that is on the list of things to do during the week. Other than that, though, a quick glance at the diary shows me a pair of blank pages. Lovely.

We called into the Rainbow on Saturday for a quick drink which thanks to a football match and fun atmosphere ended up being a few more than expected, some of them supplied by Yiannis just as we were preparing to leave. He has asked Neil to work for him again this summer, so, come Easter or just after, normal Rainbow service will be resumed. Or as normal as it ever is with Neil working there.

And so, back to the desk and the things I usually do in the winter which, this year, has been mainly writing.
