The woods are lovely
Dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
I leave next week for a visit to my islands
A day or two in the Piraeus to visit a good friend
Then it is a downhill walk to catch the first of a number of ferrys
No visiting relatives now.....no museums or monuments
Of course there are a few buildings out there especially on Aegina.
But the Parthenon or the monasteries at Meteora will not be seeing me this year.
Friends made over the years will occupy my time. Friends who communicate through Facebook since their written English is so choppy. My written Greek is non existent so it works.
Friends and the sights of the islands. From the main port of Aegina, looking back at the mainland, The mountains of the Peloponnese seem to rise out of the water.
Hydra with its donkeys and no taxis but a beautiful crescent harbor. I always run into a bunch of old Greeks from New Jersey arguing over whatever there is to argue. And on and on.
I have long wondered how we can know where we are going unless we know from whence we came. I have been most fortunate to find out.
So MOL will do most nicely till my June return. Some would say it will be improved.
Kalo Paschka, dear friend, and travel well!
Beautifully said, author. Have a wonderful trip!
