Greece

Have you ever heard from Greece? I hope so. In the school I read with enthusiasm Homer and Xenophon, Socrates or Epicureus. We had our happy days on Santorini. We saw the street riots in Athens vs. a sometimes corrupt political system. We noticed the trouble with public money (austerity problems related to stolen taxes or a high military budget?), we have blogging friends with a great heart there – and we were amused by the “Silly Walks” (Monty Python) seen in the photo below, kindly sent by “Peony71” to my group BLOG IT – click on the picture, to enter her flickr galleries
Tsarouhi from your homeland, even if it’s patched.
the photographer “Peony71” comments: The Greeks are famed for their spectacular national dress. The full sleeves, embroidered waistcoat and pleated kilt worn by the Evzone guards are finished with a pair of Tsarouhi, the pompom adorned Greek slipper.

  4. A small but perfectly formed piece of escapism, Frizz. I thoroughly enjoyed it. 🙂
    Why (or how) is your friend lost? I’m sorry if I should know this. His playing is wonderful.

  5. Beautiful Santorini – though a much more expensive island to visit than it was in the ’70s – your photos/slideshow are gorgeous and lovely Greek music. A bouzouki by any chance?
