Rosa's traditional Corfu's sweet Delights at the Jewish quarter

Debora, whose husband Nick assisted us in mooring the speedboat, wrote

me the following below, not knowing I had met Rosa and visited her shop.

Rosa was introduced to us by Ana, from the "Walk with Ana" story, who wanted us to meet Rosa- a "local Jewish person" of a known Corfulot Jewish family.


" It's a little known fact that when my husband (Nick who is Coroflot) was born, he was delivered by the only Jewish midwife in Corfu at the time....her name was Perla Soussis.

Years later, I met and became good friends with her granddaughter, Rosa....who now has 2 wonderful bakery shops in the Old Town and Jewish Quarter.....

Rosa used to hold quite a Senior position in the Civil Aviatiin Department in Corfu Airport, and I (Deborah) met her 40 years ago when I was also working there ...she was such a pretty girl. Time and life has taken its toll on her....but she is a lovely warm person. We used to spend Yom Kippor together."

***********************************

Athens airport to which we flew from Corfu to catch our connection flight back to Israel, was packed with travelers, like in the 'old times" before Corona had ravaged all over the land.

So it may not be surprising that now Greece is marked as a "Red State".

We most probably, lucked out to have returned from Greece before the Israeli Gov decreed that all travelers to now "Red Greece" are required to quarantine upon returning to Israel..


In contrast to Athens the Departure Hall at Israel BG airport, sadly was completely empty of people, when we ,safely landed in the afternoon.

Yet we were glad to hear that the Corona positive contaminated cases have decreased, following the recent Israeli second lockdown.

We are hoping that this positive trend steadily continues here in Israel and in the rest of our little world. But until it is fully banished and won over..


Stay Healthy, Stay Safe and Stay Sane!,
