Re. Perros Curries:

Well, we can certainly recommend Stefanos' curries, he does a mean Lamb Madras or Vindaloo. If you like it hot, just ask him for extra fresh chilies, they have a few chili plants around the pool and he'll happily harvest a few for you. Also, go for the pita bread option, it's almost like naan bread!!

An overcast, and (almost) chilly day today, hopefully it won't last too long though!

Wasn't down in the village today, but did hear a rumour last night that there may be a new tenant in the old Chinese this year.
I don't know how definate this is, as it was a bit 'I heard it through the Grapevine', but someone has painted the outside paintwork, changing it from red to white.
Watch this space all, I'll keep you posted.

Also, I'm very interested to hear the great reviews of the curries at Perros.....now I know where to go to get my curry fix this summer!

Well, today started a little cloudy, turned into rain, then by 4pm we had lovely sunshine once again!

Bits of cleaning going on today.
There was some pressure washing happening at Yiannis Grill Room, and a hosing down of the patio at Silver Star.

And there was also some work going on at Waves Taverna, where they were re-doing the roof of the beachside outside seating area.

Other than that all was quite quiet....I think everyone is getting ready for the Easter festivities!

Another overcast day today, must be because it's bank holiday time!

All quite quiet in the village today, although there was some painting of doors and windows going on at Silver Moon.

There are a few visitors travelling around, I think they're probably visiting for Easter. We met a very nice Italian couple on the beach this afternoon, walking their dogs, who had come over for the festivities.

The famous 'pot smashing' happens in Corfu Town tomorrow....take a look on Google, it's a huge event!
We're not going , but will be going to the Midnight service in Afionas, which is candlelit, followed by fireworks & dynamite (!) at Midnight. We went last year, and it was a great experience.

All fairly quiet in San Stef today, on this Easter weekend.

San Stefanos supermarket was open, and busy stocking up their shelves with new product lines for the summer. They have, as Lesley has mentioned, been open all winter, which has been very handy. They are closed for the next 2 days, and very much looking forward to it.

Planting was also taking place in new flower borders at Paralia apartments.

Saw some preparations taking place for tomorrow....the charcoal grill was being brought out from the rear of Athens bar, and the lamb on the spit was being prepped next to Town Pizza (apologies to any vegetarians), but I reckon there will be a gorgeous aroma of lamb slowly cooking tomorrow!

Easter Sunday in San Stefanos, and all was quiet, no work happening today, and quite right too!

Lamb was roasting on the spit by Town Pizza, and smelt delicious. On our drive down from Arillas, there was a lovely aroma filling the air....Happy Easter everyone.

A little breezy today, but gorgeous sunshine too, and an increase in temperature  8)

People still celebrating Easter, so all is quiet, apart from the random dynamite that's echoing around the hills. I'm not sure of the significance of this, and how it relates to Easter...I expect Lesley may know?
