The village of Houmeriakos




Houmeriakos is where we have two houses, one is nearly renovated and the other has come to a halt. The village is 3km from Neapoli. It was occupied by the Venetians and Turks. In 2001 it had a population of 273 but I think there are alot less now. They are a very friendly bunch and we have a taverna which is popular and a cafeneio which is used by mainly local men.. we will go there soon! There are approximately 10 Brits. here at the moment.

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog - I am stunned by the photos on yours! I bet it is a bit warmer there than here ...

My C&G took 4 years, 1 evening a week + homework, but I took it at a local college. If you do it by distance learning the time scale is more flexible!

You might like to join the C&G Yahoo group

May be off to the quilt show at Harrogate with connie and her quilting group next week. Off to the quilting shop in Southport on Friday.Any NEWS?
