- Tom Winnifrith

In Asterix the Gaul there are bouts of frenzied activity, hostilities and then, after the Romans are sent packing, the little Gallic village gets back to normal with everyone eating, drinking and doing nothing much in the way of work. I am reminded of this as I stare out of the restaurant formerly known as Miranda's where I will soon pay six Euro for a superb home cooked lunch. In case you wonder: park in a wine sauce with Okra.

As I stare out at the small square in front of Miranda's with the Kourounis tavern, run by lovely Eleni, on the right, all is quiet. A few men sit around having a drink. The world goes by with folks speeding by on the road to Kardamili. But nothing changes here in Kambos, the village closest to the Greek Hovel. Last summer, of course, it was all different.

Back then, a new interloper, the creperie, opened shop on the left of the square and then parked horrible plastic chairs everywhere which remained almost empty as the battle of the eateries commenced. By the autumn the creperie had "closed for winter". As you can see below, it has not re-opened. Peace is restored. It is back to normal. Everyone is content.
