I bring you Arillas today, possibly on the edge of a nervous breakdown. (Downsizing? WOTSALLTHATABOUT?)
The stress of buying/selling is the same all over the World- Costs more euros here- Bummer

Anyway... we get a 30 deg temp at 6pm and I am sure Arillas has been a "hottie4yerbottie"
But.... I spent some time in Sidari, this afternoon, and you could count the number of toursist, that I saw, on both hands. - or 9 fingers plus one reserve.
(2 of which were wearing masks, but we do not go there - Not just 2 fingers , Kevin as that upsets locals!)

Tis a deserted Sidari. .Ag. Stephanos, I feel, only have photos of toursists to remind them of "days gone".
Arillas continues to bob along nicely but, sadly, half a beer is better than no beer at all!!

and..... for REF. JOHN. - I saw your posting and feel very sad that I knew nothing of your problems and my best wishes to you and Dot. - You buggers!!! -A large part of Arillas which Arillas does not want to lose.
Sadly another result for lockdown as I never got opportunities to speak to guys like "Rainbow" etc.
(Just purp the horn when driving past and probably they wouldn't tell me details of a personal e-mail)

So.... 31 deg now ... I must have been banging this keyboard for some time.
Cheers
Negg

Arillas today gave me a tad of time with Dimi at Rainbow.
He is not open yet but still found 2 plastic cups and a few beers to "put the World to rights" !!!
His guests not due to 1st July, possibly,  but he is all ready and raring to go.- Very positive thinking.
However, Arillas continues to welcome Germans, Austrians plus some French visitors but miss their UK pals.

Tis a funny 'ole game and wish I could say something nice about the UK after Brexit.
but.... when I hear of problems with building materials, such as Timber,Cement,roof tiles it concerns me.

Anyway....I continue to see Greek pals , each afternoon , and their positive attitude, to life, perks me up.
As a young guy said to me this afternoon.
"" I wait for my job to begin, but not yet as no customers...so more time to spend on the Beach and relax """

Awwwwww! We live in strangest times indeed :( But I hope that changes in the next 73 days so that we get to come over and spread the love - or euros as they are the preferred method of payment ;)



Life is good ;)

Hi
The euro  will be much appreciated, love comes second lol

Keep safe
Geoff
Its better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than  to speak up and remove all doubt.

Arillas today and "I did spy with my little eye...... a KEVIN G!!"
(Actually he spied me, sipping at "Beach Kostas" whilst he was taking in a newly opened Marina Pool Bar)
I do not expect to see regular faces so early, due to "Bummer Boris" and it threw me a tad.

Anyway.... he gotta 30 deg and a hottie for his bottie today. -
Eftihia soon to open as is Armourada and , I think Tria may now be open just for a couple of private bookings.
I will know tomorrow 'cause I am a tad nosey.
Cheers

Hope you enjoyed your day out at the test match Truth, shame about the result but great to get back to a bit of normality.

Arillas today? Around 26/27deg and a "Maestrolm" (Heavy Wind-Not Kevin) blows a few cobwebs away.
Tria is open and looking after some German Guests. - The family and place are all looking good!
(If I remember correctly.. Tria are with Olympic now?)

Twas good , this afternoon, to see the "Bouncy Boys" at Graziella. They wish me "Kalo Himona" ........
........ "Have a good Winter" - private joke and all to do with language mistakes from English to Greek.

anyway.... Scotland have just lost 2-0 which cost me 3e so I will cry with Scottish Yianis.(DATSABEER!!!)

Stay well
Negg

Hottie Botties continue to be a plague for all Arillas peeps.
33 deg at 6pm and no breeze makes that a extra bummer.
Nowhere to swing a pinemartin let alone park my poor 'ole Punto.
The beach is busy but, compared to Bournemouth, the beach is very quiet!
(Butlins is an option if you can get a bank loan)

The weather continues to know no limits! - Still 36 deg at 6pm for today.
Good news for Horizon Hotel. Open to non residents for afternoon bevvies or an evening meal.
(Pool only available for resident use only)

Other places on the move in Ag.Stephanos and Sidari, Ag George doing their bit.
No offence to any guests here but it would be nice to here a tad of English chat , sometime.
Boris not making any pals but we must, I assume, he is making these decisions for the right reasons.
Cheers
