We watch in horror as the violent clashes on the streets of Athens set fire to history, destroy lives, contribute to loss of civilisation. The common people still suffer as a peaceful demonstration has been converted to a rampage by the few anarchic elements whose aim is to destroy, loot, burn and destabilise. We hope the situation will be controlled that the crisis will be resolved.
A recollection of older times and quieter dispositions when the only enemy of the city was time. An enemy more subtle and gentle, whose embrace meant a soft and mellow death... Here is an old building in the old neighbourhood of Plaka, close to the Acropolis in Athens.
