Corfu Town

We hadn't visited Corfu since the last century when we had holidayed here a number of times and loved everything about the island not only the beach life but also the beautiful inland villages, the architecture of town and the friendliness of the people. We were prepared for change and disappointment but happily it wasn't the case. We walked along the Liston on a quiet Sunday morning while a cricket match was in progress on the green.
Our favourite bakery was still in operation, although closed on this day. We've sat outside here on many occasions tucking into delicious, freshly baked pastries.
Another place we looked for was the 17th century Venetian well and we wandered about the small streets for quite a while before managing to locate it tucked away in what is now a colourful and quiet  corner of the town.

It has changed little over time.
We last visited in May 1999
and had our photos taken
so, of course, we had to do that again!
On comparing these photos Himself was pleased to note that His belly now looks smaller. But not yet small enough says I - a case of the pot calling the kettle black!
The state of some of the buildings reminded me of Havana, in a perilous condition but still very beautiful.

We love Corfu!
