December. Winter Solstice and the shortest day.

Here in Corfu we are being treated to day after day of wonderful brightness. The nights are cold, and there is frost and mist in the valleys in the morning, but the days are warm and almost hot if you sit in a sunny spot. Listening to the weather forecast on the radio where they report storms and severe weather conditions "throughout Greece" it is another of those occasions when we realize that Corfu, whilst being thoroughly Greek in most respects, is from time to time part of another, more western part of Europe.
