Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

There is another lovely picture of Leonard on this Facebook page (see above post)- posted yesterday. He is on a donkey going up the hill to the monastery and behind him on another donkey is a beautiful girl (not Marianne) who MIGHT be the elusive "American girlfriend" he arrived with. Picture is dat...

Re: John Prine: Sam Stone

I think I mentioned this before - but I saw John Prine for the first time in 1972 at the Troubador in Los Angeles where he opened for Jackie DeShannon who was top billed. I also saw him in 1973 & 1975 at the Cambridge (England) Folk Festivals along with Steve Goodman (his good friend RIP) and Stepha...

Ah, offending spam gone -
I just discovered if you go to the Hydra Once Upon a Time page (in Facebook) and click on "photos" you can see all 81 of them ensemble (duh!)

Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

Uh oh, looks like we need a moderator here... there is a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hydra-Once-Upon-A-Time/104873086249939?v=wall with a lot more photos from the early 60's & 70's of Hydra and its various inhabitants - including some of Leonard not seen on this forum (I believe) ju...

Re: Boat schedule to Hydra

Hydriot is quite correct in observing that a taxi from Ermioni would be very expensive - when we rented one 20 years ago, it cost about $100.00 USD, but we shared it among 4 persons - so it wasn't so bad for each. In 2006 my partner and I rented a car in Ermioni and drove to Monemvasia (since there ...

Re: Boat schedule to Hydra

I would recommend Spetses as well - and also Poros - both are quick hydrofoil trips and not very expensive from Hydra. Porto Heli and Ermioni on the Peloponese are also accessible directly from Hydra - but are of lesser interest - small yacht harbor towns on the coast - not much to see or do - thoug...

Re: 1960 Photos Of Leonard Cohen, Marianne, Axel Jensen On H

Wish I could be more helpful but most of these photos were taken at least 10 years before I arrived on Hydra (1973). I can confirm that the reference to Marianne in the two photos with a dark haired woman are indeed incorrect - though it's kind of interesting to note that at the time that big Axel l...

Re: Bill's Bar - actually the original bar was located in what is now the Amalour cocktail lounge then it move around the corner and up the street to what is now the Bratsera Hotel. Bill was only able to open the bar because his (then) wife, Lena was a Greek citizen. Foreigners were not allowed to o...

Re: Hydra meetup in June 2011

One of my Hydra buddies posted this video on my Facebook page: http://video.au.msn.com/watch/video/the-greek-island-of-hydra/x2dy8f9 it's a 6 minute video tour of the island done for Australian TV - it mentions Leonard and ends with "So Long Marianne" audio. Makes me homesick every time I watch it -...

Re: New Skin for the Old Ceremony reimagined in 11 Films, Dec 16

LOL! My Mom is 85 and a big Sinatra fan - photo exhibits not her cup of tea. She will be traveling all day (from New Jersey) and likely will have just the cup of tea - sans museum shows!

Re: Las Vegas, Friday December 10 dinner "casual get together"

Hi Lizzie! When I've checked for tickets - through the Am. Exp. booking service - there are no tickets available at any price level on the 11th. I know there are a couple of people on the forum who have extra tickets - but once we got the tickets on the 10th - and booked all our accoms. we just can'...

Hi Arlene, My partner, Monika and I will try to make it - though 5:30 is REALLY early for us to schedule dinner - but we are attending the concert and do need to eat something - so... I'll just skip lunch! Looking forward... (couldn't get tickets for 11th - but hope to see everyone at before and aft...
