A Milosophile’s View (2000/1)
... So why do we prefer Milos to other Greek islands.  Well the clear waters and safe bathing are a definite plus, as also is its attraction for off beat visitors who wish to distance themselves from the tourist spots of Corfu, Crete & Rhodes...
Greek Easter
The first Easter I spent in Greece, I joined 3 generations of the family from whom I bought my house.  It was a ‘baptism’ into Greek festival ensuring an absorption into Greek ways ...  The food was abundant, the wine flowed and when the music commenced young and old got to their feet...
Athens Miracle Metro Extended (2000/2)
Among the modern-day miracles destined to improve life in one of Europe’s most congested cities - Athens - the recent opening of the new Metro system was probably most welcome. ... Another real bonus is that as 70,000 sq.mtrs under Athens were excavated, some 30,000 artefacts were uncovered.

Symi - My Aegean Gem (2000/4)
The ‘SYMI 1’ tossed and lurched its way through an unusually choppy Aegean sea. The darkness and rain did little to encourage the weary passengers to weather the storm ... This was not the idyllic journey of a year ago when we had visited Symi for an hour or two and vowed to return to watch the world go by at a more leisurely pace...
Medical Experiences - When Disater Strikes
Finally, as she was experiencing severe pain in her broken arm, we called the doctor and a routine ECG was copied to Athens.  Minutes later we were in an ambulance heading for Rhodes hospital thirty miles away, where the intensive care team confirmed - a heart attack.
