Plakias / I often wonder 1985,86,87

I often wonder what happened to my friends , I met and shared  many good times with ,when we lived in Mirthios, and later Plakias, in 85,86 ,87. I am only still in touch with one Adam an American now living in Paris that used to work in the Alianthos with Sifi.

 The others I remember was  Caroline & Guy Adar  ,  Peter & Jeannie who was a music teacher in rethymnon but lived in Mirthios and was our neighbours for a while ,  Sacha who ran the  plakias youth hostel then,    an irish girl enya whose boyfriend ran/or owned the Smyrna/ Smerna Bar  . There was Alan and Beechy who ran the pension for Anna  which is now Anna apartments in Mirthios also in the village were  eccentric Ruth ,  and Americans  Dallas and Vicky  , Ronnie , Tim Oliver a builder and Brian and Leyla.  In plakias   in the Alianthos shop were two  german girls  Ute & christina , and  beautiful guy from Bavaria  called  thomas , and Hazel a girl from England that  came for a week and  stayed forever or at least a while .

The Greeks in Mirthios  we knew was of course Giorgio  the name of the bar he ran,  below  the then  Mirthios youth hostel ,  the cooking in his bar  was done by his mother affectionately known by all as Mama , overseen by  her  handsome  and proud  husband, the spit of what Giorgio surely  has become , his brother had the Dolphin Bar in Plakias Manoussous ,  Anna  from the now Anna apartments who visited at weekends from living in   rethymnon  her sister Crysoula  who we once rented a house.  The other resturant/bar in the village was run by another Anna with her  german help Wolfgang ,but to visit you had to do a detour round the village because of village poltics and jealousy  ..  Crazy Angelo with a wonderful moustache and wasn't adverse to using a gun , plus his kindly brothers older and younger allways ready to gve a lift ,normally on a tractor . the enterprising bus conducter Lefteris who had bees .rented house sold honey , and we heard went on to sell dougnuts on the beach . The lovely Irene and blind Manoli  and sister Andegoni surely dead by now as very old then.  Proud  Maria from the shop proud of her dead husband decorated by the UK govt for services to british airmen and of course the donkey man  looki looki always there to sell you the odd fig or orange for some ridiculous price  .

In Plakias  Sifi from the Alianthos hotel Resturant, the kindly  Manos owner of the then monoply  Candia Tours and his team of bus drivers   fed strong coffee to keep them awake on transfer nights, the mad drunk monk who always played backgammon outside the lesbain book shop bar  the , Lito and Lucas ex Athens and olympic airways staff that opened an restaurant just over the small storm drain bridge who played classical music and did a mean meal of a salad  , The brave  french couple who took the Greeks on at thier own game to be the  first foreign owners to do so  at thier  Mimosa bar  Michel and Tania    lovely Lance who I have heard  has sadly passed ,who did at one time did the   the botanical tours for sunmed and editor of the naughty reps mag whilst working in the office at Iraklion (Heraklion) sadly missed . There must be many more I have missed of forgot the names ......
