There are pilgrims passing too and fro through our village of Lafki day and night on their way to Pantokrator Monastery, then to eat in Strinilas, on the 5th and 6th of August there is a Panigyri in Strinilas square, round the huge Elm tree, in the centre.

Posters have just gone up for a "BEACH PARTY" on Avlaki beach 1st August, they list, music, dancing, food and drink.
I guess it would be located at the far end of the beach, but if you turn up it will be easy to find.

Hi Jan, the seminar was for traditional Greek dance, this year was focussed on Cretan, Pontic, Macedonian, Corfu, as well as a couple from the Agean islands while in Corfu, the programme then varies when the participants arrive in Macedonia for the second week.
Some of the lessons are with live music as is the evening party.
We were based in the taverna nearest the harbour, this year the food was very good in all respects. On our last night, Monday, not only did they cope with our 55 members (teachers, musicians and pupils) but the word was out locally and they had 25 or 30 others out on the beachside to feed. Hell of a night as you might imagine.
This was the 34th seminar there organised by the same team. Although some years have been missed, other years have had 2 or 3 seminars in one year. It is never advertised other than word of mouth.
Bob

There's a lot of secret car parking places in Benitses...makes it easy even when Ag. Marina.

Did you go to the taverna nearest the wetlands sanctuary? It looks closed but she usually has eggs from her chickens and delicious chips!

What was your seminar about? Did you use the beautiful lecture theatre at the salt flats, or, even better, the open air one...with flamingoes strutting their stuff in the distance - magic?

Just back from Alikos, (its down near Lefkimi) shallow sandy beach with warm sea. Not much there to do except chill in an old fashioned way, two tavernas one at each end of the beach, with a few holiday apartments, studios and rooms, and that's about it.
Our teachers, musicians and pupils were scattered around in various locations, but all seemed pleased.
The seminar consisted of 2 to 3 hours teaching in the morning, then another 2 hours from 6pm, followed by anything up to 5 hours free dance after dinner, in other words some fools hardly went to bed but made up for it by sleeping during the day.
Most of the group have now moved on to Macedonia to finish the seminar.
We were a very mixed bunch with attendees from as far afield as Australia and USA, France, and Belgium, one Russian, one Cypriot, one Swiss and three English.
Happy days, I hope they repeat for next year, and that I'm fit enough to attend.
By the way, as well as all that, we attended two panigieri, one in Benitses and the other the other side of Kavos. We preferred the latter, Benitses was just off the main drag, so parking was a lunatic asylum, but well attended for all that.
