Greece my palm with dreams
Shirley Valentine eat your heart out. A riotous account of how an English couple were led up the garden path to buy a home in Crete. Living with the village people they encounter a way of life that will tickle you pink. More
There's something hugely enjoyable laughing at others people's embarrassment and this book is no exception. Buying a place in the sun is the dream of many. On making the move you either maintain a stiff upper lip and having social intercourse solely with fellow ex-pats - or you get down and dirty living a life with the village people. A lifetime's baggage of British culture flew out the window when we found our house way back in the last century, when Maggie Thatcher was on the throne. Over the years we've come to embrace a different way of life that's had many moments we'd like to share. Whoever in their wildest dreams would believe they could ever be fancied by a turkey? What are the social graces required when asked to 'pee now' in front of company? Are eight sacks of sheep droppings more conducive than eight sacks of pig poo? Read the book and you'll learn the riveting answers - and a whole lot more besides.
