Homesick…

Yes, it gets me from time to time… And after discovering these two videos by Daniel Rhodes on youtube… what did you expect?

So here is the city I was born and grew up in… FEELING or better LIVING:

…facing the Parthenon every day from our small balcony… having our school trips next to Pnyx, driving to Lycabettus for romancing, feeding the pigeons in Syntagma square, looking for treasures in Monastiraki on weekends or waiting at the dock in Piraeus to board the ferry to some distant island…

And here is the island where I spend my summer holidays… Voted the best destination in the world…

Thank you Daniel, whoever you are… you reminded me that how hard I try I could never erase these pictures from my mind… And my heart will always belong to Greece, my multiple-wounded, hatred-plagued, politically-distorted, all the while citizen-deserted country… 

I wonder when…
