Beautiful Lindos...

...with its beautiful medieval walls which enclose the remains of the acropolis dedicated to Athena, goddess of wisdom, of household arts and crafts, of spinning and weaving, of textiles. Inventor of the flute, the plough and the ox-yoke, the horse bridle and the chariot. Athena, goddess of war, guardian of Athens, the city named for her; defender of heroes, and of justice.

Your post reads like epic poetry.
May those gods bless Athena for all she did (does?).
Such a beautiful place, with a happy juxtaposition of medieval and modern.

And the beach also looks quite inviting.

Just catching up with your beautiful Greek photos, after a bout of bronchitis. Feeling slightly more human today.

Loved seeing Lindos through your eyes. It looks so beautiful. Adore the dog, of course.

This is a call to everyone to please step outside the right vs. left paradigm. While there are important issues worth debating within this paradigm, all of them will be moot if we do not focus on a much greater issue outside this paradigm. Thomas Jefferson warned of wealth concentrating to such an extent that it threatened the state. Nowadays the media has taught us all very well to ridicule anyone who talks of central banks usurping the power of government. Well now I suppose the media will have to laugh at themselves, as many outlets from Newsweek to the Financial Times of London are openly discussing the creation of a "bank of the world" that will control economic policies of every nation. I invite you to watch this video, which details how this is currently taking place. While it focuses on our current officials' cooperation with these plans, it steps out of the typical political paradigm by highlighting the cooperation of both parties. Please do not look to politicians to protect us. Only we can protect us. And our first step must be to reach out to police and military. Without their cooperation, the global elite won't have the muscle to exercise their will of oppression. Please share this oath-keepers blog with them.

California Girl said...

is Greece on the euro? if not, how does their cost of living compare to the US? Inotherwords, is a holiday there reasonable?
