>> Monday, November 25, 2013 – Life on Symi in November, November weather, Symi Dream, Symi Visitor Accommodation
|On my way to work this morning I spotted this sign on the door of the clinic in Chorio, announcing that various medical specialists would be in attendance at the clinic tomorrow, Tuesday 26 November. These peripatetic medical services are very important in the islands, particularly now that we no longer have the medical hydrofoil and the winter ferry service is so infrequent that it is very difficult for islanders to go to Rhodes for the day to see medical specialists.|
|Moss and weeds growing in the whitewash on the Kali Strata steps.|
|Symi is a curious mix of ruins and rebuilds, hi-tech and no-tech. The pale yellow buildings with new red roofs are the Gymnasium, the academic high school.|
|Lean days ahead for taverna cats now that everyone has closed for the winter. Time to hang about the fishing boats instead!|
|The view from my office balcony today. It is another wild and blustery day with heavy rain forecast.|
Wishing you all a merry Christmas with your loved ones wherever you may be and I shall see you all again on Symi in the New Year.
