Spent 3 nights on Corfu in 1981.

Two nights were in Corfu town and the other night in Kassiopi. Rented a car and drove to west coast (beach where Ulysses landed) and circled the mountainous north island. Was during early Spring and Cercis (redbud) trees were in bloom and women were gathering olives. Drove from Kassoipi on road that went to village near top of highest peak. A frocked priest flagged us down for a ride to his church in the village. Wife stopped taking photos because she thought the priest did not approve and we did not communicate well. Did not know where taking him until church in village. The traffic was other autos but mostly women with donkeys loaded with olives or firewood. The priest had us stop at his church and had wife take his picture and large smile. Unforgettable.
