Usually a lethal combination, however there is always an exception. For example, traffic into Kamini harbour in February doesn’t pose much risk by them what’s relinquished steerage. Spotted here, a local mate (anonymous by request for fear of other paparazzi or fishering-fellows) summoning family help to carry the days catch. Love wintertime on the island, these snippets are ‘once only’ specialities.
We do periodically get some unusual requests through the site but this morning’s was a first, one of the best in fact.
The offer of “live” donkeys at only $ 500 a head to be collected from Alexandria port in Egypt.
The deal was that we had to take a minimum of 1 200 ‘heads’ (yep, one thousand two hundred) Fair assumption here that yer man didn’t do much research about the Rock, thanks Mohamed, right form of transport, wrong size island. Imagine a herd that size landing here…. Chaos, Mutiny, Stampede, Rhubarb!!!
Traffic on the hill, runaway vehicle disturbs an otherwise tranquil morning coffee on the terrace. Who needs this kind of stress to start 2016?
Driverless what’s more
Escape artist… A good omen for the year’s beginning
Seaplane vs. Seabird
Sometimes evidence to the fluctuating rumours and rhubarbs of our village appear truthful. Dimitri, owner of the Kodeylania taverna had said he was going into competition with Seabird, one of our popular water taxis, and decided to hasten the ten minute trip with a Seaplane. Bravo Mr. Vlachodimitri, we needed a new effiecient form of transport.
