After a somewhat hectic few months, I am back in the house. My son, Matthew, came over for three weeks and we had a wonderful time together. Filming for 'The Island' is taking place in the village - apparently Pano Elounda is doubling as Spinalonga. When the film crew is here it is impossible to get through the village and oftn filming goes on quite late into the night. It is, however, really interesting to watch. The film in 28 episodes will be shown on Mega either this autumn or next - my money is on next. It is quite spooky to see people in 1940s costume wandering through the village. The old ladies here say that the film people have got it exactly right, so I am going to get some photos to post on my blog this morning.
