Red wall

Isn’t it more beautiful than the Cannes red carpet?
What is this lady waiting to climb those stairs?

Belgium to Gaza

After the tragic end of the Freedom Flotilla, a second attempt to break the illegal blockade of Gaza by Israel will be organised soon. We were together last night to support the Belgian organisers of this new flotilla and to meet 2 of the Belgian girls who were in the Mavi Marmara.
Visit the site Belgium to Gaza for more information.

Wall-breaking flowers

Flowers everywhere: even in the small space in between the bricks of the walls men build to separate each others.

Όλα τα πήρε το καλοκαίρι

τα μαύρα μάτια σου το μαντίλι
την εκκλησούλα με το καντήλι.
Όλα τα πήρε το καλοκαίρι
κι εμάς τους δύο χέρι με χέρι.

Οδυσσέας Ελύτης

Arcobaleno fai da te

Had this picture been taken from my neighbour’s window, one could have thought the rainbow was coming out of the chimney

¡Viva España!

2 months or so after the Mundiale (an eternity in the life of a 11 old girl…), my niece is still in love with Spain! And she is just wearing the hat in this photo: you should see her with the complete panoply!
But I understand her very well: how could one not fall in love with a so welcoming country and people?

Στο κάστρο το παλιό…

σε κάποιο τοίχο σου 'χα γράψει σ' αγαπώ
το πιο γλυκό μου μήνυμα

Το πλήρωσα κι αυτό
τόσο ακριβά που να μην ξέρω αν σε μισώ
είναι βαρύ το τίμημα

Π. Θ.

Waiting for clients

Taxi drivers (and maybe fishermen too…) playing τάβλι, during their free/waiting time…
Ρίξε μια ζαριά καλή και για μένα βρε ζωή
Φέρε και καμιά εξάρες, φτάνουν πια ντόρτια και δυάρες
Φτάνουν πια τόσοι καημοί

Slow fishing

These fishermen have a more contemplative approach to fishing: they probably prefer to play τάβλι with taxi drivers…

Fast fishing

I sat for a while in a bench simply to look at this fisherman… and he fished at a ‘mean speed’ of 1 fish/minute or so! Of course they were small fishes and one needs more than 1 to cook a family dinner. But I had never seen a so fast fisher.

La mia prima farfalla

Ready to take off, like the plane to Cyprus I’ll take Friday afternoon: I will (sadly…) come back with many pictures of this beautiful island.
