No photos

Well, I've been taking lots of lovely photos of the house and the village, and of the girls playing and swimming on the beach, but unfortunately I left the lead that connects the camera to the laptop back in Athens, so I will post them another time.

We noticed him again the other day and paid him no more heed than usual until Peggy the Frenchwoman suddenly exclaimed: "But this is incroyable! He has with him a mouton!
