Corfu [Day Seven]

Final day in Corfu.
I’m feeling drained and eager to see my family again; the sun definitely takes it out of you.

Breakfast at a taverna in Pelekas, served with a very good cappuccino. This was followed by browsing the touristy shops. Bought my Mum a lovely handmade necklace.

Back for two more (each) pork gyros today, they’re not bad for only €2.80 a pop!

Spent some time wandering around the small back-streets of Pelekas in the blistering mid-day sun; a lady waters her plants and mops in sync.

I think I’m going to read for a bit as I feel like being particularly lazy this afternoon†.

Played a few card games and finished packing, which was a bit of a tight squeeze into our 20kg hold luggage – the old, analog scales say that it weighs only 16kg, but I’m a little sceptical.

The pork we had planned to eat for tea had gone bad, as did the chicken a few days prior – not hugely impressed. Salami, cheese and red onion toasties instead, with very miniature chips which we deep fried in the remaining olive oil – very nice.

Took a short walk to the crossroads (just down from the apartment) to find the woman selling oranges, unfortunately she was not there tonight‡.

My girlfriend found out about my blog tonight. I think she likes it, and is inspired to create her own!

Some card games to follow this evening, and then an early night.

† I was actually too lazy to even read.
‡ We had planned to make orange juice to drink tomorrow morning, the morning we leave.
