... do some shopping:
Fruit and vegetables. Whether from small local grocery stores, or from roaming salesmen selling directly from their donkey or truck, you will find the freshest of fruit and vegetables!
Fish. Buy the freshest of fish at the port directly off the fishermen’s boats, literally moments upon their arrival after a long day or night at sea. Or just knock on Vaggeli’s or Eleni’s door down by the harbor. Otherwise, you may find various merchants selling the fisherman’s catch of the day, throughout the village either on foot or from their “ice-box” vans.
Clothes. At the harbor, or the main market, you will find shops that sell good quality clothes or the 1 euro swimming costume you need because you left yours behind!
Medicine. Pharmacies only cell medicine and they are open all day apart from siesta time, of course! It’s always best to check the timetables at the door of each pharmacy.
Co-operatives. Local co-operatives such as the Women’s co-op and the Agricultural Co-op do have delicious local ‘treasures’ for you to discover. From the finest of olive oil to homemade “kritharaki” (our version of pasta) liqueurs, cheese and so on and so on…
… help a neglected animal:
There are a lot of people who help with the cats and dogs. It’s best if you ask at the Tourist Information Office.
... protect the environment:
It is very difficult to act on any recycling methods in a small village in Greece but we have been doing progress. All the used oils from restaurants and hotels are being collected in specific receptacles and transported to Athens in order to become organic fuel. We have been trying to promote the products that are being sold in glash returnable bottles rathen than non-returnable. Also the black oils from boats and other machines are collected, the batteries at numerous places like the bank, electrical appliances outside the hardware store of Karantonis in Petra, electric bulbs at Karantonis and at the bank.
