Some Videos Illustrating Events on our Holiday
Viewing the Wreck
We did a trip in a small motor-
“The Wreck” is the name given to a beach on the north-
One of our favourite places for our dinner is in Ana Volimes, about five miles over the hills from Ariadne. There is a direct, if winding, route there, over the mountains. This place is run by a very lovable and charming character whom we call Dennis. He does not have menus, but he recites in perfect English a list of what he can provide to each new set of guests. James filmed this spiel, where Dennis is speaking to an elderly couple who came in just after us. You can also see his young cook arriving, about half way through the video. When Dennis speaks of “an omelet made with yellow eggs” James can be heard laughing.
These videos were provided by James, and originally I converted them to the AVI format, retaining the size of the originals. But following a hint from Vicky I converted them to MP4 with size 640 by 360. This reduces the size by a factor of more than ten, and the format is known as YouTube. If you would like to see a bigger size, just ask.
Thanks for looking at this blog, which I hope you enjoyed.
