More!! More!! More!!

I loved the meat market shots and the chapel. Very neat, very clean and very very nicely composed.

I also liked the shot of the leafless old trees on the sidewalk cafes. They somehow seems to stress on Greece or Athens' old-age charm.

Thanks for brining Greece to us through your eyes and your words, Sam. This is one of the places I would love to see before I pass on and it seems half of my wish has been answered by your travelogue.

Where are we going next?

I think that "R" is simply written as P.

And with this, boys and girls, my story in Greece comes to an end. I loved it deeply.

For years, Greece had been on my list of places to go, once again my work allowed me to go there and I'm glad I was able to take my wife.

As a country, it is more tangible and accessible than the rest of western Europe. Everything is not perfect, people are easy-going (a typical Mediterranean trait) - in fact people are lovely, I'd say one of the friendliest and nicest population.

The food is great, if you like Feta. Even if you don't, there are a lot of great options.

Yes, I ust add that at the time of my visit, Greece was one of the more expensive countries in Europe to visit, even more expensive than Germany and France. But of course there are cheap ways to travel everywhere (I don't have that experience in Greece, lol)

The next morning we took a flight into Germany where I spent the weekend. It was warm, comfortable (25 to 27 degrees) and I was basking in the sunshine.

Does anyone still want to see pictures of the now legendary Bad Nauheim (my wife's little town in Germany)?

Or shall I say goodbye and thank you for reading and enjoying this journey with me?

Sam,

Are you sure that was the meat market ?? That place is as clean as an operation theatre in any hospital here, much cleaner than most if I dare say that.

And why are you stopping ?

For you , there is a line I can add,

Sam Kapasi

Keep writing !

Don't flatter yourself SAM! Your no where near that mean looking thing. You are a lovely. happy Yeti with a huge heart. A Yeti that loves music? Hmm only some yeti that dint like what it heard should look like that. (we could also add, the magician with words, the wiggy wiggy wonder etc etc?)

If that is really you then it has to be pre TheOne era. Now, why would someone want to look so mean with Theone around?

Hmm nice try though Sam. better luck next time.

Anyway, here is what I probably look like. Like a Wookiee. Menacing, but in a strange way, lovable.
