Back from 18 days in Plakias ... and not really arrived here yet ...

There is a new book about Plakias which is availlable in several Supermarkets: "Ο Πλακιάς του χθες" by Charidimos Andrea Papadakis. Loads of historic photos (b&w) from the early days of photograpy til the
beginning 80s, but mostly the 50s-70s. All Greek, 15€

I'm just reading "Just Kids" by Patti Smith.  
From Brooklyn to Chelsea Hotel, a Life of Art and Friendship (English Edition)

"Smith's evocative, honest and moving coming-of-age story reveals her extraordinary relationship with artist Robert Mapplethorpe. Part romance, part elegy, "Just Kids" is about friendship in the truest sense, and the artist's calling."

A wonderful piece of paper!

Where to go / No ships to gavdos ...
« on: July 05, 2010, 10:23:54 AM »
We planned to spend a few days on the island this time but unfortunately the ships which used to serve the route to gavdos lost their license due to new european safety-standards:
We will make it on our own with our little red rubberboat ...

Plakias / New harbour
« on: June 17, 2010, 09:58:47 AM »
Hello Chris,

where there any "new trips" going out from the new harbour? Rumours said that Plakias may be part of the Chora Sfakion - Loutro - Paleochora - Route soon ...
Would the new harbour be suitable for ships sized like the Daskalogiannis? We'll be there in July.

Plakias / Summer work in Plakias....am I dreaming?
« on: May 03, 2010, 09:22:12 AM »
Many years ago when we first hit the island we asked a busdriver ff he would make it all the way down to a place we called "pla-kee-as". What? Where? The man thought for a while and then he shouted out: Aaah: plá-dczia ! Yes! We go to Plá-dczia! As he was from crete origin we use to speak it like this when we play that we are sophisticated ...
Maybe a topic for a pleasent voting?

BTW: We heard very different pronounciations of another very important word: raki
From "Radcz" til Ra-kee" Which version do you use?

Where to go / Timeos Stavros

Somewhere halfway up the track there is a [it was there last year ...] a wooden hut where you may fix your bikes and make the rest on your feet.
I don't think it is possible to ride to the top on the back of your bike.

That looks really trashy!   It will need more than one coat of paint to make it look like a state of the art concrete-building ...
