Hi Todd - we enjoyed the company with you and Susan. In retrospect I would say, I should have spent more time with you.

A warning just came in from our friend Joe Costello, who found two strange cash withdrawals from his bank card, that he had used at Alpha Bank on Hydra. Just to be save check your bank account.

I will discuss some changes for our next Hydra meetups with Jarkko. Especially the one long line table order at Roloi's is very disfunctional. Talking about Roloi's ... more later :-)

Hi Friends,

got home from the Paradise nearly a week ago, but I am still enchanted. I discovered a rare treasure what I don't want to lose. This was my first, but certainly not my last trip in Hydra!!! I can't find the words to describe my sentiments about that few fantastic days in a unique, magical place with all that nice people, some of them my dear long - time friends, and many new ones.
I want to thank Jarkko and Eija for their hard work to organize our programs, for their devotion, and for their immeasurable kindness.
Greetings from Hungary to ALL OF YOU (without mentioning names).

I would like to describe the feelings of Hydra through my pictures, that speak better than words.
Up to now I have done 5 albums, but soon I will add others...

and he did quite well

... The first time I've ever sung in public!
One of the most embarrassing and frightening moments of my time
... and one of the most exhiliarating. As if I'd broken through to the other side!

Thank you, Lydia! - and everyone else for the encouragement

Gallina, you are right NOT to mention names. Thank you for your pictures, also of the sing-along, I was too busy to take any! I am so sorry,
of course I should have mentioned you, the most sporty type, and there are others that I did not mention but who are in my mind anyway ...
And Hydra, the wonderful island without stress.
Would Leonard know, how we all sang his songs and how good it feels, to play and sing his music.
