Back to Normal

The locals go back to work today after an explosive Easter weekend.

Easter is the number one holiday in Greece, far bigger than Xmas and the celebratory tradition in Kalymnos is for the young men to throw 3-kilo packages of dynamite off the mountainsides that surround the town.

This is thrilling for the first hour but after four days of non-stop bombardment we now know exactly how grim life was in the Flanders trenches of 1916.

As they say in Scotland, "Gies Peace!"
