Re: Letter from the Mayor of Hydra

Hi all in case that some of our friends are wondering what is the need for a social supermarket or pharmacy in rich Hydra I can assure you that with Greece now in the 7th year of its financial crisis there are many people (unemployed, without social security, homeless) that benefit from the social s...

Re: Bench updates

Finally!

As we say in Greece "κάλλιο αργά παρά ποτέ!" (better late than never)

Hydra didn't forget it's "Λεονάρδο".

Re: Bench updates

Dear hydriot

the benches on the way to Mandraki are much more
simple than the original plan.

I don't know however what exactly the new plan looks like.

Nick Cave: Nous le savions malade. Mais ça a quand même été une grande tristesse. Il a été un phare toute ma vie. Quand j’ét...

Re: Terrible news from Hydra

All the members of the gang were finally arrested. 4 of them were sentenced to life in prison and the other 5 to many years imprisonment. But you have to know "life sentence" in Greece means in reality maximum 20 years in jail and often less. But it is sure good that justice has been served for Mano...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I had the chance once to ask Leonard what his stance towards death was and he answered that it was "the preliminaries" he was worried about. It seems from his sudden departure that the Universe was kind to him with "the preliminaries". It is a comforting thought. Real Poets never die. Thanks for the...

"Bob Dylan I love you, but I wish it was Leonard Cohen"

I find that the above phrase by Greek journalist Despina Trivoli summarizes succinctly my feelings about the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature. Although I recognize that Dylan's cultural impact is greater than Cohen's. He is Pablo Picasso while Leonard is Henry Matisse. But then again I always prefered...
