Befor we went to Athens we had a very nice lunch with good friends. Nice when the weather allowes the seaside tavernas to stay open longer. It was a very pleasant meal and it was nice to see the «new» taverna. You know it was terrible destroyed by the flood September 2015. They could not open 2016 because the whole building was so damaged. Hope they had a nice season and more to come!
On our way to Athens, we had a very nice morning in Skiathos. A good old friend took us for a sightseeing and showed us his home. Mom had not seen so much of Skiathos for a long time.
Apostolis & crew moved a little bit to the right of the old office. Congratulations!

Some from Greek City Times
This Thursday morning the sun is shining from a blue sky, 11,2 outside at 8.00, it has been down to 8,2 in the night. Yesterday we sat outside drinking coffee.
Every day now I hear banging sticks on olivebranches, people talking and laughing, yes, it is olive picking time.
«Ripe olives can yield up to 30% of oil depending on the olive variety, so that’s about 3 kilograms of olives per liter (around 0.9kg) of oil.
But some high-end brands use up to 15 kg of olives to produce a single liter of olive oil (there’s a tradeoff between quality and quantity).
Considering that an olive can weigh between 3 and 12 grams, the number of olives should lie between 250 and 5000 olives, depending on how large and on how ripe they are.»
