Next Sunday, Palm Sunday, will be the start of the big week/μεγαλή ευδομάδα before Easter. By the end of that week (end of April) the first charter flights will have arrived on Skiathos. We already have seen several tourists on the island that have arrived via other airports like Athens or Thessaloniki or by train or car via the mainland.
Chairs and tables in big quantities have been placed in front the municipality cafe, ready for more visitors and locals.
And flowers are blooming everywhere. The poppies have shown their heads in places we did not see them before. All the earth that was moved during the flood has probably mixed up all the poppy flower seeds too! A wonderful sight they are.
