Anyway, I’m still resolutely saying ‘Thank you’ and ‘A coffee please’ loudly and slowly and Britishly, as I can’t yet remember the difference between efkareesto and parakalo (phonetic spelling I know) and it could lead to yet more embarrassing exchanges if I said the wrong thing.
Once on the island, I have to pick the rental car up at Mytilini airport and then navigate my way to Molyvos and my hotel there. Having done that, I’ve done that I reckon I’ll be out for the count for a few hours, maybe with a bottle of Mythos beer by my side – I am on holiday, after all!
For now, though, I’m signing out as the power is running low on my laptop and all my continental adapter plugs are safely – and stupidly – packed in my check-in luggage :(
So parakalo, efkareesto, and ciao…
