I see the licences have changed recently - latest photocards now valid for 15 years instead of into your sixties....

Have to go collect Mary's, just arrived. Instructor reckoned it would take 10-20 days to arrive, taken over a month. Stavros didn't want paying until it arrived. Worked out quite well as we're working (and earning) now.

Local coast guard in action again, another emergency transfer from PisiAetos to Sami, this time a 61 y-o local in need of emergency medical attention.

What does that mean, they have to take a driving test instead of paying a bribe of 85 euros to pass?
