    A lovely fishing village
    Gavrio is the port of Andros. It is the first town you meet when you enter the island. And the impression is good. Itactually looks like a fishing village. There are fishing boats in the harbour and old fishermen unfolding their nets. Some fish taverns line the dock and lovely cafeterias offer a precious cold drink, after so much heat in Greece! The gist shops are lovely and people do not press you to buy. I just noticed that there are not enough playgrounds for children, which is one thing to ameliorate in this lovely village.
