We were sitting on the plane flying to Athens while the forests of Attica around were under fire. We read on German newspapers that raging wildfires continue to close in on the capital. Once again, I thought, after the December 2008. But the December fires were different kind. We sow at the airport of Frankfurt that many newspapers putted this news on their first pages. On the Süddeutsche Zeitung first page, we sow a magnificent photo (from Getty Images) telling the hole story without to need any words. Under the picture the title was:

“Griechische Tragödie”
(“Greek tragedy”)

Anyway, Athens was for us only a pass-through and this time we stayed there only for the time that was necessary for a taxi to bring us to the bus station to continue our trip to south Peloponnesus. “Junioridis” didn’t notice anything about burning forests.

    Τραβηξα μερικες επιστρεφοντας προχθες με τα καμμενα. Σκετη θλιψη. :(

    • Εμένα μου κάνει για άλλη μια φορά εντύπωση πόσο μικρός είναι ο κόσμος! Από αυτά που διάβασα στην εφημερίδα στην πρώτη σελίδα μάλιστα, είχα μερικές στιγμές αργότερα εικόνα στο φινιστρίνι. Η σχέση μας με τα μέσα επικοινωνίας και η σχέση μας με το χώρο αλλάζει.
