Report Bordeaux 23.-25.3.2018

What happened one year ago: The small bunch of us lonesome or less lonesome heroes or lesser heroes gathered last spring in Toledo. Which only produced the wish to repeat the waltz. What happened: Babeth and Henri invited us and all the guests came in, Ann and Bea and Caren and Ciaran and Conny and ...

Re: Henning 60 y

Dear Henning
There is no virtue in getting older, no reason to be proud of being born.
But as there now nothing can be done about it, have party, let yourself be partied and may the party keep on all the year long, to which my wishes shall accompany you.

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009 - 2017)

Yet, I cannot help but wonder why a number of the stalwart LC forum fans that were there will not be attending the LC tribute concert in Montreal :? Well, in my case it was a long planned holiday with my 88 years old mother at the same time, booked before the Montreal event was published and probab...

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009 - 2017)

As most of you knew already and the others found out today, I do not like goodbyes.
So just thanks dear Szilvia, may you recover fast, thanks dear Eva and Tamas. Thank you all for great company on a wonderful weekend and thanks for the sometimes needed patience with me.
See you!

Hydra Beaches

Some information for first timers. While one finds orientation on google maps, it´s a good idea to buy a map of the island in Hydra town. Information given dates from June 2017, mind that services may change according to the season. Hydra town is a harbour, not a beach. Of the beaches on the north c...

Hikes on Hydra

On Hydra you can buy a map of the island 1:25000 or 1:30000. Do so, even if they are not altogether accurate. Then there is an excellent free ebook of around 100 pages: Footpaths on Hydra Island by Antonis Kalogirou. You find it on this website: http://www.pezoporia.gr/pez/ekdos.asp?cat=viv&vid=64. ...

Re: Where to eat on Hydra

There is now an ever increasing number of restaurants and bars on booming Hydra. It´s probably best to discover yourselves, though the ones mentioned in the posts above are good hints. To us the main distinction for food quality was, is the fish and meat fresh (good) or frozen (bad and dry). Most re...

Dear Jarkko Could you please do me a very small favour and tell prime minister Trudeau or other relevant persons that the event in question has to be postponed as I am not available the first half of November. :( Thanks in advance, Harald ***I am sure that he will be sorry to miss you! / Jarkko ***

Re: Next Step: Charity projects

The bench is there. Hurrah and finally. Our thanks have to go to Jarkko fur his endurance in persecuting our goal. It´s like that sometimes: We decide something on the forum and leave the rest to Jarkko. As I consider Jarkko´s character, it was neither a small burden for him, to be in charge of spen...
