Perfect Easter!

Wonderful, spring-like weather made this year's celebrations particularly special. It was not too hot for the crowds milling around in the centre of Corfu town during the pot-throwing on Saturday morning to become claustrophobic, and not too breezy for our candles to blow out either during Good Friday's Epitaph procession or when we all poured out of church at midnight with the "holy light" of the resurrection.

As usual our own celebrations were twin-centred on Corfu Town and the village, picking the best from both. The excitement of Corfu Town takes some beating, but the religious aspect is more moving in the smaller confines of the village.
