Re: hydra 2011 flying dolphins

Hellenic seaways announced the timetable for 10-11/6/11 and 14/6/11 - 11/9/11 and also the itineraries for the Holy Spirit holiday (available only in Greek so far). I give it here (click to enlarge): hydra2011.jpg I recommend to book in advance your dolphin tickets, there is no ferry to Hydra and do...

Re: Boat schedule to Hydra

Just to mention that only in July and August you can see performances at the ancient theatre of Epidavros, but I highly recommend a visit in any case. And ladies, remember to wear your sandals or flat shoes (like Anne in the photo ;-) ), high heels are forbidden. As for Lakis Christidis of the Hydra...

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

Yes, indeed, if 1960 is right in the captions, the little boy must be Jason Clift Johnston (he was born in 1956). And I found this interesting reference about his life on Hydra: I was born in 1956 on the Greek island of Hydra to expatriate Australian parents. Hydra was a paradise for me and my broth...

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

Axel Jensen is the one sitting in the first photo, the standing man is Tore Bernitz Pedersen, Norwegian artist and friend of Axel Jensen. Not so sure about the little boy, but he looks like Martin Johnston, son of George Johnston & Charmian Clift (he died in 1990).Here are some photos of the Johnsto...

Re: THE HYDRA MEETUP, JUNE 10-12, 2011

Happy New Year everyone. Prices haven't changed that much since 2009 for Hydra, you can surely find better offers now (though we had VAT increase three times in just one year).Things change so quickly, we expect a difficult year in all terms, so I think prices will be even lower for accommodation an...

Re: A note of disappointment

Thank you Andrew, I couldn't agree more, you said everything. I know how much you and many other Cohenites wanted a concert at Herodeion or Lycabettus, but I guess "that's how it goes" in entertainment and all kinds of business. Besides, among the very few words written in AEG announcement about LC,...

Odysseas Elytis -"The Age of Blue Memory"

The Age of Blue Memory Olive trees and vineyards as far as the sea Red fishing smacks beyond, as far as memory August's golden sheaves in midday slumber With seaweed and shells. And that green boat, Just launched, still blessing the water's peaceful breast with "God will provide." The years went by...

"The Guests" at Herodeion

I don’t know if this has been posted before, but it was one of the few times that a Cohen’s song was sung at this magic place. Just for the record, it was on July 23, 1984, the first time that Herodeion opened its doors to welcome non-classical repertoire concerts. Nana Mouskouri was invited for a c...
