Corfu in 1972

This 20-minute film captures the timelessness of life in Corfu. The music is good, too.

great fun to see.  A bit confused at the start by the lovely Epitaphios music as a background to the August St Spyridon procession (unless it was a very hot Palm Sunday or Easter) but lovely to watch it- and see a number of familiar faces and sights

I enjoyed that very much - brightened up a chilly morning.
When was the runway over the lagoon built for the airport? Does not look as if it was there in 1972 but I could not quite tell.

sorry Dassia I meant to say "seeing" various faces from the past.   Including my neighbour on Kapodistriou who was one of the dancers at the Achilleion and our beloved priest who married us and baptised both our children.   Wonderful.   Thank you again xx

Lias, I'm very pleased to hear you and Jan saw people you knew in the film, especially one as close as to you as the priest. Thank you for telling me!
