Haraki is a good choice. We found haraki and arillas in the same year 7 years ago and have been visiting haraki in June and arillas in September ever since

Yes Will, lovely place Haraki, we first went there in 2004, and have returned several times since, Arillas still takes preference in our affections, perhaps its because its 23 years since we first visited Arillas.

In spite of my reputation, which is quite correct that Arillas is the centre of my universe, I adore Rhodes. Given the means I would happily spend time there. My original wedding ring is buried somewhere under the sea in Faliraki since 1980. 

Never heard of Haraki before, but looked it up. Looks typically Greek, and I am sure that I would like it after recommendations like yours. Arillas is not the only fruit, but these days it is the only one I want to eat.

My problem is I like both places equally, both have different qualities and feel at home each time I visit them!

Just goes to show how little we care about the exchange rate, which is what we were supposed to be on about. Do you get more euros in Haraki? My experience in Arillas is that changing travellers cheques is yet another way that the honest owners in Arillas give you the best deal possible. I remember posting this before when somebody had been stuffed in Spain.

Hi Phil, Having travelled around Greece for too many years to remember I Still work on the principle of piling the euros ( previously our beloved Drachma) in a heap dividing by the number of days/nights, spend a heap each night and waste whots left on Metaxa, lol.

1,1650 with clarity credi card today, slight drop from yesterdays 1.160 but above the rates being offered elsewhere. Great card as long as you don't need cash from the ATM

Aha ValnBill meluvvers. If I'm not wrong you're doing it for real just now, living the dream..... The 0.001% that exchange rates supply will never alter a fantastic meal at Graziella. It isn't worth worrying about. Life in Arillas is exactly what yous and Bill, PhilnJen understand.

Just bladdy enjoy, and forget about us.

loveandhugs

Like most we never worry about the exchange rate....just take the best on offer and spend it in Arillas.

Unfortunately today is our last day, we depart at 10pm tonight. Much as we hate night flights leaving so late gives us plenty of time for many tearful goodbyes.

David.... We will toast your absence with a Metaxa tonight, love to you and Edna, we have missed you both.
