|Tuesday from the Symi Visitor Accommodation balcony and the Cypriot cruise ship, Salamis Filoxenia, that used to visit us on Wednesdays, came in.|

|Someone has put a nesting box under the balcony of the cultural centre. Those of you who can read Greek will realise that this building was once Symi's town hall. The current town hall is a three storey building at the back of the square in Yialos.|

Local Greek band Other View performed in the town square in Yialos on Wednesday night which gave the locals an opportunity to enjoy themselves and also for local young talent to be showcased. Unfortunately there is very little in the way of advance publicity for any of these events and no posters so it is difficult to find out what is happening when. There are occasional announcements over the town public address system (the one they were testing with tantalising fragments of 'Zorba' a few weeks ago) but as is so often the case if you are in the wrong place or the bus goes past at the crucial moment, you miss the announcement. Apparently on Saturday there is another event in the town square in Yialos and then on Sunday there will be the annual Symi Shrimp Festival in the square in Chorio with shrimps, wine and traditional dancing. This annual event is organised by the Symi Women's Association and predates the original Symi Festival. Whenever I receive information about anything specific I will post it here as I am sure will James Collins on his Symi Dream blog.
Have a good weekend.
