simply the best !

still the best , the castle , chora and kapsali   as evening falls , the harsh light of the day has gone and kapsali shines in the soft blue evening skies , one could never tire of this , after you visit chora and walk through its venetian streets its then   down to kapsali for dinner and a few drinks with friends to bring to an end another great summers day. on kythera !

fishing village

the picturesque fishing village of limnionas , situated west of mylopotamos , down a winding spetacular road that goes  down  to the village, in past years   limniona was  a fishing base for the mylopotamo area, the village folk would stay in those little cabins and fish the waters at limniona for a week or so then return up the mountain with their  catch of seafood for their families .. today  its a lovely place for a swim and a nice cold drink at the koisk ...

what a disgrace !!

the once  beautiful waterfall at mylopotamos is now reduced to what resembles a swamp , in all my years of going to kythera i have  never seen the waterfall with no water at all , in other  yrears it was a treat to jump in the cold water on a hot summers day swim over to the falling water and sit there and cool off , but now the water is polluted , filled with leaves , bits of wood and full of rubbish  , the still water smells, its a crying shame it looks like this , all the ...

sad aftermath !

sad scenes all over the island of the remains of the current fires that swept through the island in early august , thankfully no lives or houses were lost, a big thank you to all those firemen local and from mainland greece that fought the fires .. that with no boat from athens made it a tough time for our island but people still smiled through it ,
