Still Corfu’s best kept secret – Nothing has changed since I last blogged this topic in 2008!
Anyone who lives or has friends who live in Corfu will know that we have been experiencing particularly hot weather for the time of year. The sort of weather that makes the simplest of tasks seem like an uphill struggle and make those of us who work wish we could spend the day by the sea or nearest pool.
Shopping becomes a statistical nightmare – the usual trawl from supermarket to supermarket has to be re-configured because it is necessary to buy the milk/butter/cream at the last port of call and not the first.
When it comes to parking at the supermarket – well, this is whole new story! First of all most supermarkets simply don’t have enough parking spaces (why were they given licences in the first place, one wonders?) secondly Greek drivers would prefer – judging by their choice of parking space right outside the door – to be able to drive into the supermarket and do a drive-by shop, and thirdly in the one and only supermarket with enough parking for a football game – NO-ONE USES IT! (the photo, by the way, was taken on Saturday at prime shopping time just as in the previous, 2008, blog).
