It is a bank holiday long weekend in Greece. It is Carnival this weekend, followed by Clean Monday which marks the start of Lent. I am going island hopping for a few days so my next blog will be Friday 3 March. Late February is probably not the best time of the year to go island hopping in the Dodecanese but the clement weather is expected to last into next week.
One sad piece of news is that the Mandeio cafe in Chorio is closing down as the owner has serious health problems. The Symi Gallery Cinema club which has been using it as a venue for weekly year round film shows is relocating to Lefteris' cafeneion (aka Bulmas') on the square in Chorio with effect from this Sunday when they will be screening 'The Blues Brothers'. Apparently there will be a municipal carnival event in the new undercover sports facility in Chorio this Sunday afternoon.
Have a good weekend.
