>> Friday, December 11, 2015 – Christmas on Symi, Greek Christmas, Solidarity Symi, weather in December
|The view from Symi Visitor Accommodation this morning. The Blue Star was quite late today and there was a lot of traffic b both ways. Solidarity Symi also sent 25 big boxes of humanitarian relief down to Kastellorizo which all had to be loaded on board.|
|Those wonderful red leaves keep on falling.|
The Blue Star was very full today as lots of people left the island to do their Christmas shopping. There is no point in going on a Wednesday as there isn't enough time to get everything done so everyone goes on Friday, even though it means coming back very late as the boat goes to Kastellorizon. There is only one more Friday shopping day between now and Christmas.
The locals are becoming concerned as we have not had the usual seasonal rain to get the crops growing and as the days become shorter and darker time is running out. Although we had heavy rain early this year, that was months ago now and November and December have been drier than usual.
Have a good weekend.
