I'll take pics of tonight to post on here.
At first i thought it was smoke from a fire but it stretched across the whole centre of the island and when i hit Zakynthos town:-
As regular visitors know from the last pic if you were to look across from where i was you would see all the port road buildings and fishing boats, when i got in to the fog it was almost zero visibilty, the roads are scarey at the best of times with the traffic without fog LOL

Now this doesn't mean "PANIC!" in the words of Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, "Don't Panic!" everything to do with the tourism on the island looks ok and i'm sure everyone will survive till strike is over and holidaymakers will still have a great time.

Also Kalamaki cash points all were not working yesterday. one not working, other switched off and third was empty and haven't tried today so those of you coming out this week bring some euro or travelers cheques with you as maybe they will not get filled due to banks not being able to send vans out to refill machines due to petrol shortage.
I'm sure this situation won't last long but better to be safe than just turn up with cards.
By the way i'm doing fine and bar is looking better this year i'll take some pics when dust settles from the roads.

Ok so whats new in Kalamaki Drunk Corner has another large TV, Plus Soda has no outside bar anymore its been taken back to its doors with just a seating area and a large outdoor screen has been built at the front near pavement, Hera restaurant is no longer down the bottom end of the resort but in old Kalamaki road, Paris is no longer a restaurant but now a chill out bar (wonder where they got that idea LOL), Melon bar has been taken over by the owners of the restaurant Select that was next door, Sugar Reef has lost about 3 metres of its front due to the new pavement thats been laid, Sarony's bar is now Rita's bar and everywhere seems to be giving their buildings a lick of paint this season but if you saw the dust that was here you would know why. There are still places not open and haven't seen any sign of anyone working on them so there may be a few left closed by the looks of it.
Last weekend was easter and nothing was open and today is Workers Day where office and Shops are closed for a day off, AGAIN!
Tomorrow i'm doing my nTour of the resorts to see whats going on but my best mate Dez who works at Palmyra in Argassi has told me at least 6 restaurants and a few bars are closed over there, he did tell me the names but i'll give you more info after tomorrow.
Lovely and sunny and warm, bit chilly at night but better than UK HAHAHAHA See you all soon.
UPDATE- Looks like Plus Soda has its bar back outside, see things change very quickly out here
