Photographer's Note

Perhaps it's stretching credibility a little to call this another "conversation piece", as I seem to have caught these two during a hiatus in their discussion. But it's close enough for me.

The street is variously styled Gkilford, Gkylford, Guilford, and is named after Frederick North, 5th Earl of Guilford, who in 1824 established the Ionian Academy on the island of Corfu, which was under British control as part of the United States of the Ionian Islands. It was the first University to be established in modern Greece.

The Starenio Bakery outside which these two are sitting, is well worth seeking out. It doubles as a cafe, as you can see. We found this little bakery after a few hours exploring the old town. We were looking for a quick bite to eat before returning to our yacht to continue our trip from Levkas over to Italy. Inside we found a great selection of home made Corfu pittas, traditional breads and a selection of home made sweet treats. And coffee of course. It was a delightful place and the owner and her daughter were very welcoming and helpful. And not busy: mind you this was late September.
