The door-knocker was still there when I was on Hydra in April.Amazingly, I don't seem to have taken a final photo of it....
Not much had changed when I was there...Nikos is still at the Portofino, and Giannis, Vashu, Costas and Pannis are at the Roloi. Vassilis has squabbled with them and now works a few cobblestones over at the Cafe GoGo. Giannis and Vasilis are still buddies, though. Joanna the donkey lady is still smiling, and the arms of Leonidas and Pannagiotta at Sophia's are open wide.... And Christina and Manolis and Christo and that dark-eyed Albanian boy fed me graciously and generously on the roof terrace ( I went weak in the knees when I tasted the melitzanosalata...)
And, yes, they are still singing down at Dousko's!
