Mid-Week Update

Well, the deed is done, the papers are signed, the photos are on the Symi Visitor website http://www.symivisitor.com/ and the delegates are on their way back so what happens next?
Read the Symi Visitor newspaper http://www.symivisitor.com/newspaper.htm for the full story and more details about the benefits to Symi of the Sister City project between Symi, Greece and Tarpon Springs, Florida.

Meanwhile, back on Symi, we had a brief shower at daybreak and some welcome rain is forecast for the next 24 hours. The power is off today on the north side of the harbour as the Public Power Corporation is still hard at work on the upgrades to the island’s electricity network so the Alpha Bank, the post office and the Armara supermarket are only able to provide limited services.

Off to plant broad beans in the rain!

Have a good week.

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
