Rhubarb On the Rock

Talk about a hypocritical incident which highlights the stark contrast in ways of combating the country’s economic plight. Hydra made international news this month when a  taverna owner got into a rhubarb with the local law for not supposedly producing some receipts for tax purposes.

Her son was hauled in her place down to the constabulary which rallied the islanders into supporting her and laying “siege” to the police station, cutting power and water.

On his first visit to Hydra back in 1983, David decided that owning a bar in this exotic location was an ideal way not to spend the rest of his life in the fast-lane of corporate advertising and journalism. It was an idea spawned by the Honorable Bill Cunliffe of Bill’s Bar, renowned wateringhole for anyone who knew this part of the world at the time. He and a couple of old-timers, Anthony Kingsmill and Leonard Bernstein, planted the seed: Come!
