Greek General Election Sunday 16 September 07

PASOK has hired the Symi Visitor Exhibition Centre as its Symi headquarters. The islands have a strong tradition of voting PASOK and in what looks set to be a fairly close election every island vote is being courted. Many Symiots lay the blame for the lack of a proper ferry service at the door of the governing New Democracy party and readers of the Symi Visitor newspaper will be aware that there was talk of Symi actually boycotting the election altogether at one point.

The results should be known in the early hours of Monday morning.

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
