View from Lycabettus  It’s been three months since we came back to Athens as our house in Assini does not have any central heating and just the fireplace was not enough to keep the house warm during the winter. We miss Assini and now that the weather is getting warmer, we’ve decided to go back […]

We visted the First Cemetery of Athens last Monday, on the 25th March, which is a public holiday.  Although living in Athens for so many years we had never visited it before although we knew that it has some of the most beautiful nineteenth and twentieth century Greek sculpture. The cemetery is under the Municipality […]
