|The Kastro, Symi's Akropolis, as seen from Pedi bay. Take away the electricity wires and the beach umbrellas and not much has changes in this scene in centuries. Symi has a pleasing sense of continuity that is lacking in so many other places.|
|The road to Panormitis shows clearly in this photograph of Pedi bay.|

|The fence is to keep the goats out rather than the people in!|
|Is this my best side? One of the many small goats hanging about, working the cuteness factor at Nanou.|

|Many of the mansions on the Kali Strata and in Yialos have flag poles on their balconies for patriotic purposes.|
Symi is a wonderful place for relaxing and doing nothing much in particular. There is no feeling of obligation to become involved in frenetic water sports or other strenuous activities. A cheerful taxi ride to a pretty beach or a convivial day out on an excursion boat followed by a pleasant evening in a traditional taverna or one of Symi's excellent bars is more Symi's style.
Have a good week.
