>> Monday, December 8, 2014 – Christmas on Symi, Life on Symi in December, Symi undercover sports centre, weather in December
|The official Symi town nativity scene, set up on the stage in the town square. It is illuminated at night. I apologise for the rather unpicturesque municipal car park in the background but it cannot be helped.|
|The butcher was putting an illuminated plastic festive elf in his window as I walked past this morning.|
|Merry Christmas on the Kali Strata.|
|Meanwhile the work continues at Pachos, next door to the Symi Visitor Accommodation office. For those of you who don't know, my desk is just behind the green doors on that balcony to the right, above the Sunflower laundry. That small white blob on the balcony railing is our famous webcam which broadcasts a live view of Symi harbour, updated every 30 seconds 7 days a week, except during power cuts. Our entrance is actually in the lane to the left of the photograph, on the other side of Pachos.|
|The lambing season has begun and these chaps really aren't too fussed about whether the gym roof leaks or not - they're enjoying some fresh horta, the soft wild greens that sprout everywhere at this time of the year.|
Have a good week.
