You're welcome.  Enjoy your trip.

Unfortunately there will be no update this year as I won't be going to Plakias.

Plakias / Re: This forum is commin' like a ghost town

I think it's gone quiet because people are away on their annual holidays.  Maybe when they get back they will share their news and impressions with the rest of us, and the forum will then liven up.

Like others have mentioned, I check this site almost every day and read any news avidly - 35 hours left at work this week and then my Plakias preparations get underway - fly in on Tuesday night next week for our 2 week break and just cannot wait !!!  So looking forward to catching up with friends and seeing what's changed in the town as well as relaxing with a G&T in Joe's and a red wine or several with old faces in Kostas Crysoula...deciding where to eat...we put all the names of the restaurants in a bowl and pull one out each day....then start arguing if we really want to do that one that night or save it...put it back in and try another one...simple things !

Plakias / Re: Olive oil on tables

Was on holiday on a different island in June. Only in one place did they serve olive oil in a sachet  cost 1. To be honest, there wasn't enough for my Greek salad! Everywhere else were bottles, no problem.

Has caused some concern. It's about the ban on the olive oil bottles made available with the salt, pepper and vinegar. I guess in some places they found it had not been refilled or changed for ages and was substandard. The original suggestion was to introduce individual sachets of oil...........which adds to the unnecessary plastic in the world. I suspect most places will still offer oil but, perhaps, from a bottle kept behind the bar. I can't see this lasting long but can understand why the Govt wants to improve standards.....not that I've ever had a problem in Plakias !

We've been here since 1st August & it's been fabulous,  nice temperature & less wind than normal.
Very busy early in the month but quieter now after the Greek holidays.
Not much change bit of progress on the new development, zebra crossing's (which nobody respects) two way traffic past Ostraco towards harbour.
The new Health Centre is now manned daily around mid-day for approx. 3 hours, that's opposite Apollo hotel next to the council offices.
Most things are normal & great to see familiar faces returning to Plakias.

We will be here in September so will give an update then.

PS forgot to mention the shark visit which caused excitement , baby blue shark so no real danger.
