Kalamata, Greece

Caption: It is usually the beaches and the sun that epitomise Greek photographs. I thought a cooler approach might be called for in the present economic climate. Despite the 'Medea' coverage (deliberate misspelling) life is still quiet and peaceful in this part of Greece. Long may it last.

Amen to that. Just received some olives and oil from my relatives across from Gytheio, God bless them and you and Greece. Heartwarming photo, as usual.

Is that an olive tree you so beautifully used on the left? May it continue to symbolize your peace as long as possible, considering the stormy economic climate around you.

About Granddad


We are English, (except our dogs, who are definitely very Greek, having been abandoned strays who took us in out of the kindness of their hearts). We retired to Greece in 2003 to escape the phoney political correctness endemic throughout the Anglo-Saxon world and to mix with some real people again. We live in the Exo-Mani in the extreme South of the Peloponnesus, where the sea and countryside are beautiful and the weather is also less political (i.e. they don't tax sunshine yet). The site provides an opportunity for us to bore the whole world with our snapshots and for which we are duly grateful.
