Whenever something goes wrong here in Corfu, the “Moro” is always to be blamed.
Every village on the island has its own “Moro”.
He can be anywhere…
Of course this could be dismissed as utter nonsense, many though will not discuss the matter further…
He has no shape or form and haunts lonely places and solitary people!
Lights are left on all night and the television plays non-stop in the bedroom of the ones who live alone.
He is older than the “vampire”, invisible and preys upon the ones who are alone!
In general the Greek people don’t like being alone, so this anxiety created the “Moro” as a warning.
