'' only in kythera''

this helihopter landed next to the BP service station outside potamo,to refuel ,they were flying over certain greek islands to find the best beaches to sail tourists to these beaches, but as you do , you eventually need fuel, so why not just land next to the first servo you can find and re fuel!!! and also go over to gikas supermarket and do some shopping!!!!
