Fireworks, Flaming Judas, gunplay in traditional style, Greek Easter, Paska, was certainly the busiest in memory. In addition to the usual festivities, a long weekend was introduced to allow travel time as Protomayo (May 1 or May Day, the Greek Labor Day), fell on Easter Sunday and was thus moved to Tuesday, May 3, making for an extra-long long weekend. The cars at Metoxi opposite were parked for hundreds of meters up the access road and out onto the main road, and to boot, the first arrival of super cruise ship made it feel like Times Square at New Year. From tranquil little vehicle-less island one day to super celebration the next, human gridlock. The staff and folk in the catering businesses will probably have to put their feet up for a day or three.
