If a bus, a train, a plane, a coach and a ferry all do what they should be doing tomorrow, I'll be having a late supper beside the Aegean Sea on the Greek island of Symi, a boat trip from Rhodes.
Most days we'll walk up some or all of the 500 steps of the main road, Kali Strata, past two- or three- storey houses with elegant wrought iron balconies overlooking the sea, beautiful pediments and pebbled and paved courtyards. On the right hand side you can see how many are still in ruins as a result of bombing during WW2.
We come back a couple of days before the next Greek election. Let us hope for a just settlement between the nations of Europe.
