Sat 2 Sep - It's been a little while since Scotty, Andrew Scott (Greek - Sikiotis) has been to Ithaca where he stays at his family home in Stavros. He was one of the icons of the wild early 90's when
Petes' Bar was the hangout and long days at Polis Beach were the agenda day in and day out. The XL Trail Bike (right) has been blazing the roads of Ithaca for 20 years, and apart from a few minor repairs, has been Scottys' reliable form of transport here. The bike once carried a record 7 people at one time.

"Are you sure you don't want a parrot for your child?"
Mon 11 Sep - Left - This guy should have been here in August. Now consumers are thin on the ground, too thin even to be tempted by the cheap prices of the many useless toys this street salesman was lugging around in flower baskets. He looked like he needed a break, but that didn't urge on the locals in Frikes.

Mon 18 Sep - Above - John and Beverly are such regular visitors that they have been watching local kids grow up into adults. Beverly has been coming to Kioni since 1972. Their village of Saltwood Hythe in Kent has 1 Pub, 1 Castle and 1 church, and although it's beautiful with a beach in which Beverly swims hot or cold, Kioni has that something special that makes it her second home, a place she dreams about and yearns for when she is away.
