And they both were super people to get to know albeit it ever so briefly.

Hi Gallina,
Thanks for all your lovely photos. I miss everything and everyone also. I keep having taste flashbacks of the exquisite food we shared and tactile flashbacks of the gorgeous water off the rocks...
Carole came across this video featuring Leonidas and Pannagiota's taverna...sweet memories for many of us...

Anne, thanks for posting this little gem! You and Rick Steve's took me right back to Hydra.
I loved it when he says something to describe the island and finishes the sentence with
"and you have found your Greek island", indeed we have. Also I was thrilled to see him
at Leonidas and Pannagiota's home. I think that night at their taverna was one of the
highlights of my visit!

wie schön..
it's been three weeks since the meet-up already and not a day has gone by without me thinking about it.
I keep looking at the photos, to assure myself it was not a dream..

...leaving Hydra on the day of the general strike with the taxi-boat freedom(!)
for € 6,50 to the mainland. together with the fan of the fans: Nathalie (the guy in the middle is the captain, whose ship was perfectly built)
we hired a car and visited epidauros(ancient theatre) picked fresh oranges from the tree, stayed overnight in nafplion(former capitol)
and passed from the channel of corinth to athens airport. it was worth doing it!! i´m still in love with greece and all his ambivalence
