Independence Day

Independence Day

Yesterday was Independence Day in Greece, a day usually marked by church services, parades, marching bands and speeches. Here on Symi, the Town Hall played stirring music and the National Anthem through the town’s speakers so that everyone at home could hear. There was a fly-past of jets in Athens where the President and Prime minister were to attend the tomb of the unknown soldier.

Meanwhile, with a lack of new photos to show you and very few older ones on my new PC, here’s the best I can do. These are views from February.
