Further to some recently added posts. Not sure of the cost of petrol here, other than it has gone up alot the past few months. Coffee (Nescafe) here is anything from 1.30 euros to 2.50 euros (overlooking the harbour price compared with back street price) and there are some marvellous "off the beaten track" tavernas, many open all year, where you can still eat the most delicious Greek food and at extremely reasonable prices! Greek coffee is around 1 euro most places. Soft drinks in tavernas once again from 1.30 to 2 euros each. Sometimes if there are problems with ferries food runs a bit low, but we have never had to panic yet. Try it here, the Dutch on this island seem to love living in Greece and most have bought houses. Very few English where we live but a few have been here for about 16 years. Thanks for the kind comment on my post hecate!!
