Er! U4ea missed my point completely!

I was referring to the old locals who have passed on, not original visitors to the Island.  The chances I had to 'talk' to local old people was one
of the things that made me want to return over and over again. With the loss of those people and the island just becoming another internet choice
then you will get the sort of people that both Ari and myself would run a mile from (if only to avoid the projectile vomit)!

Mind you, if you wanted the real Kef would you actually choose Skala?

I didn't miss your point Jedw.

Some of the "old timer" locals may have passed on, there are still some around, particularly in the villages in the interior.

I was simply trying to point out that the world is different place to 20 years ago, Kef is a different place, Kefallonians are different, and the visitors have changed. Some of us continue to go( I'm not up to 20 years yet), but some don't because of a variety of reasons. If there are no new visitors to replace them, then the major incomeof tbe Island is lost.

These new visitors may well have different wants and aspirations to we returnists which have to at least be acknowledged.

Looks huge and does look like an abattoir - see previous post before the build!   The article is just a re-write of a press release!  Bet the company are pleased.
