Athens 2016: Lost grandeur (Χαμένα μεγαλεία)
Running through the centre of Athens are two imposing avenues that connect the two major Athenian landmarks of Syntagma and Omonoia Squares. Stadiou and Panepistimiou Streets were where, a quarter of a century ago, I would come to go shopping. Stadiou is wh...

think that in the brexit debate, immigration is rightfully seen as a problem. Countries whose economies are doing well have a lot of migrants. But countries  like Greece don't. We can't have this mi d of magnet force pulling people in on e direction. This affects the services that  a country can provide. And it also affects the fabric of society that makes up communities. Outside capital cities where you can be anonymous, this societal makeup is highly observable - and not all people can cope with an influx of foreigners in what was once a 'monovarietal' community. That's when racism and prejudice starts. There have to be plans in place to deal.with that

i believe that the greek referendum was not much different from the british referendum
both referenda showed a very stark divide in the country - the groups who voted for OXI/LEAVE are very similar, as are the groups who voted for NAI/REMAIN
in the greek case, the implications of the referendum were overturned by the government (in the foreign press, the expression is 'delayed')
in the british case - well, we must wait and see
i suspect everyone has seen the grphics of the vote by now: https://www.facebook.com/maria.verivaki/posts/10209553425249523?pnref=story

Samaria Gorge (Φαράγγι της Σαμαριάς)
Last weekend, I went on a trek through the  Samaria Gorge  with the students from my workplace at  MAICh . The Samaria Gorge, which is extremely well documented in the web, is a 13km ravine created from the path of a river between a mountain plateau and the...

Athens 2016: Syntagma Square (Σύνταγμα)
On first glance, Syntagma Square may look like an ordinary busy square that's a good place to get photographed in the centre of Athens, just as any large imposing square is in any other European capital city. Sometimes, it feels like the heart of Athens; bu...

A very white view of Brexit
In all the Brexit discussions, I have not come across any discussion of the similarities between the Greek and the UK referenda. There are so many similarities, at least to me, and I wonder how the great economics analysts have missed this point, or maybe t...

Brexit
This song was playing on my local radio station this morning, right after Brexit was announced: We took the wrong route, and don't ask how or why, we found ourselves in this deadlock. You might be to blame, maybe I am to blame, perhaps it was just meant to ...

Last Lands Conquered
My latest quilt project is about how the world was conquered. Many of the fabrics were collected from scraps, repurposed fabrics (eg curtains), used clothing and gifts from friends.  The design of the quilt top is broadly based on a pattern I found on the w...

Visitors (Επισκέπτες)
My most recent visitors came from far away, not just from another country, but from another continent. Students from the University of Arkansas, headed by Leslie Edgar, they flew directly into Hania, straight from that other continent. Understandably, they ...
