Anyway, found a couple of Doctor Who books (recent ones) for 1.95 Euros so i got them as well. With that, the tinternet and my DS I'm fine if it rains again!
I think his name was Marmite, either that or Elmo. I can't remember which.
Also, selling British chocolates to Americans doesn't work, one of my housemates was part of a business that didn't do too well.

Marmite can be bought in most food shops in Zakynthos. Its content of vitamin B helps regarding mosquitoes.
So eat lots before you go away or while you're away or take vitamin B tablets - I know which is the cheaper option and nicer if you like marmite - great stuff:)
Yeah for some reason if you're a tourist everything suddenly becomes far more expensive. :( It shouldnt cost that much to import the books and I'm she they had a lot of older titles.
One thing I learnt recently from my mums friend, I think she was in Portugal recently. They were at this resturant and they will keep bringing you food and unless you tell them to take it away they will charge you for it. Which happened to a couple next to them when they saw their bill.
The lesson is, if you didnt order it, send it away.
