Should you be under the impression that things at the Island Bus office on Tilos are a bit hectic lately – well, they are. For island standards at least. Today’s blog is unkempt and all over the place, too – and the reason is: the office is moving.
The KEP Tilos – so far home to the local Island Bus headquarters curtesy of Tilos Council – is giving up renting its picturesque office space and relocating…
… to yet another picturesque spot just across the road which happens to be council property.
Boxes, files, staplers, chairs, more files, more chairs and a pretty magnificent old clock surround me while I write this. Two days ago, the new deputy mayor and a bunch of strong men blocked the office entrance with an impressive looking play tower they had just lifted from its old location at the kindergarten – which will now host the new KEP. I felt tempted to ask whether I could please relocate to the tower.
While I totally understand the need to cut down on expenses, there are some things I will miss about this office. The view for one.
And the arrival of enthusiastic visitors.
But who says there won’t be any visitors in the new office?
Let’s just hope from wherever I will write the next blog, I can still have an eye on the bus!
