Peter Bull on Hydra in 1963 (It Isn't All Greek To Me, 1967):

"I decided to visit Hydra. It is absolutely beautiful but at the time of my brief sojourn it was full of Students of Life from England and America who could have found out most of the info for which they were searching in an evening on the King's Road or Forty-Second Street. In fact it was very little different, atmosphere-wise, from what I had just escaped in Spain...Hopefully I sped across Greece in a high-powered bus and ended up in Albert Finney's villa in Corfu".
