It’s All Greek To Me! – John Mole
Sun sheep and sea, ruins, retsina and real Greeks – a love affair with Greece
Imagine a little whitewashed house with a blue door and blue shutters on an unspoiled island in a picturesque village next to the beach with a taverna round the corner…in your dreams Moley. Welcome to a tumbledown ruin on a hillside with no road, no water, no electricity, no roof, no floor, no doors, no windows and twenty years of goat dung…
Meet Elpida, who cures bad backs with a raw egg and spells …Ajax the death-dealing butcher… Saint John the goat-headed saint… beautiful Eleni yearning for Düsseldorf…old man Christos, dug up on a sunny summer morning…sun-touched Dionysos dancing like an English tourist…a family saved from a watery grave …and Hector their dog, a mutant specially bred to frighten little children, who met his destiny on Evia
Here is timeless, rural Greece – catch it before it goes.
