Heard a commotion in the village - obviously there are only certain people who have telephones in the village. So a neighbour got a telephone call for another person in the village - so she shouts off the balcony *telephone call for Eleni - it's her mother* so another neighbour who heard the shout shouted to another neighbour who was closer. Then another and another and another! Til eventually Eleni came waddling up the road to all these neighbour shouting *pame, alata, ella* (hurry up, come here, etc) Although I have heard it many time - It's just tickled me no end! Only in a Greek village lol

That's exactly how it used to be here, Kalami way. The only telephone was in the kafenion in Kendroma or Gimari, and the ladies used to shout down the valley to each other until the message got to the correct person. Good strong lungs these girls had!!!
