Would you believe it - the day after I posted my comment, the first card arrived!

I know most people don't bother sending holiday postcards nowadays, but we still do! On 12th Sept we posted 6 cards to the UK in the box opposite Peli & Maria's shop (not the one in their doorway) and not one has arrived! It usually takes a a week or 2, but I think we can now assume them lost. Has anyone else had a similar experience, or can offer any explanation?

Hope so Aline - we arrive on Monday night! We have had quite enough rain in the UK here this week!

Benson, what you are saying is correct. However, Paul may have a valid reason for his request - for example, his wages might be going into his bank a/c halfway through his holiday.

Looks great, much better than here in the UK!

We'll be staying at the Nafsika for a week in Sept. Really looking forward to it as it's 3 years since our last visit to San Stefanos. Have eaten at Nafsika before, but never stayed there. Impressed by all the reviews, can't wait!

Can someone who is there at the moment tell us whether the Hippopots shop is still open?

Avon "skin so soft" body wash (pink container) seems to keep them at bay. Fragrance is not too feminine so men can use it too! It took years to get my husband to use it, but one year after he got bitten and I didn't (usually the other way round) he agreed to try it, and now won't use anything else! Their dry oil spray is pretty good too( no, I'm NOT an Avon rep!) Agree that wearing perfume in the evenings is a no-no.

 Would absolutely LOVE to come to this, but sadly not visiting SS this year!  Just been watching ABC's "Look of Love" on YouTube, memories of a fantastic era...........

Maybe some of the locals will know of a charity shop nearby - I have seen these occasionally on other Greek islands, although not as plentiful as in the UK! Alternatively there might be somewhere collecting donated items for the Syrian refugees. I saw a lot of the good work being done on Lesvos last year.

We went to Sidari by bus a couple of years ago. The return bus was late, which wouldn't normally matter, except there was a torrential storm raging and nowhere to shelter at Sidari. Got absolutely soaked! Luckily staying at Tereza's, so got off right outside the hotel and went in for a hot shower and change of clothes! Another nice trip we did was to catch the bus to Avliotes, lunch at a fab restaurant called Ilias Taverna, then walked back to SS, all downhill.

Love Arianna's. I remember buying some of their home-made olive oil soap there once. It contained bits of dried rosemary that came off and floated in the bath water looking quite sinister!

Rilo, I'll second that. Yiannis's orange cake is AMAZING......

On a similar note, anyone have any updates re the "abandoned "hotel? There was some speculation a while ago that it was going to be turned into an all-inclusive hotel?
