Paleochora Christmas Puzzle 2010
December is here, and with Christmas on the way, it’s puzzle time again. Here’s the chance to win a €10 book token to exchange at Paleohora’s ‘To Delfini’ bookshop (perhaps our guide to ‘More Walks from Paleochora‘, just a suggestion …..)
All you have to do is answer these ten questions.
The 1st number in brackets refers to the total number of letters in each answer. The 2nd number tells you which letter of the answer to take. Shuffle these ten letters to give the name of a village in the Paleohora area.
