Easter already, and the first issue ever to cover a full three-month period. It’s been quite a challenge! Although I’m actually astonished at how much information we were able to get on events taking place as late as June! Of course there are bound to be additional events no-one knows about yet, but we will be using a number of channels to keep you up to date with the latest news and events until the Summer issue, due out at the beginning of July.

Obituary: Yiorgos Zoumis
Many readers of Paros Life & Naxos Life came to know Yiorgos and Marousso Zoumis from Marathi through the article “At Peace with the Past” published last year about their lives on Paros (March 2010 issue). Those of us who lived in the Kolymbithres area in the nineteen-sixties have known them for over forty years, so it was with great sadness that I learned of Yiorgos’ death on 19 March at the age of 91.

Going Green: The House of your Dreams
