Yialos

Yialos

I’ve not shown you any photos of Yialos for a while as I don’t get down there much at this time of year. Some were taken from the balcony, others while pottering around last week. Meanwhile, up in the village, we at our house are looking forward to the arrival of the family on Thursday. It will be the first time I’ve met my grandson, so that’s something special. The temperature has stabilised a little, with cooler early mornings, but it’s still hot in the sun, of course. It’s also been windy in the evenings. I’m not sure if that’s the Meltemi, but it’s welcome in a ‘close your shutters before they are ripped off’ kind of way. I now need to dust everything in the house – again – but that’s hardly a high price to pay for cooler air. Anyway, without much news, here are a few random shots taken recently in or of Yialos.
