FOG and a trip to Pachna

 Saturday afternoon we trundled down to the 1911 club  in Pissouri where the FOG (friends of the guides) held their Summer BBQ to raise funds for the FOG  association. 
The food served was superb and the entertainment was provided by local singer Sarah. The guides raised much needed funds by way of a raffle and other fund raising events.

On Sunday we made our way up to the village of Pachna with Mike and  Tina to meet their friend, Kim.
 Kim moved to the village some 26 years ago and bought a derelict building and over the years has worked hard to construct a beautiful home in the heart of the village. He even has an old fashioned Zivania (moonshine) "still" in his backyard.

After a cooling drink in Kim's courtyard we made our way up into the village to the Linos Tavern for Sunday lunch.
