greece

spending holidays where my tax money already is .... in greece :-)

well, after visiting rhodes / crete / chalkidiki some time ago, we are at the peloponnese peninsula this time. i can't tell you now if we will see olympia, sparta, mycenae / mykene, corinth, athens or ask the delphi oracle about our future ... of course there will be some updates + P I C T U R E S and some blah-blah as comment below the pictures => enjoy :-)

as for now, our hotel seems to be very fine and its free wifi connection works fine as well. the water in the see is damned cold but i was inside anyway, the service people in the hotel are very friendly (it was reported by the mainstream media that greeks hate us germans because of all that financial / debt crisis issues. OMG, as if we german folks would be responsible for that and as if i wasn't in the streets at any possible occasion in order to protest against the current financial-military complex => friends, let's  OccupyWallStreet + OccupyYourStreet + OccupyTogether = let's install a real 'direct' democracy now ... damn, how the hell can the 1% and its small dirty mainstream media divide all the nations & groups apart and conquer all of us so easily?

is there any euro currency crisis out there? hell, i can't say by now, maybe later ....

a greek quote? a soul that is kind and intends justice discovers more than any sophist. ~ sophocles (496 BC-406 BC)

next one? In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme.~ Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC)

folks, what about the upcoming greek election? there are only 2 choices, aren't they? lol

well, any final thoughts / opinions? yep, we liked the greeks, greece, the small earthquake (hopefully not the offshoot of the deadly north italian earthquake), our hotel + its great service (especially the food ... yummy!) and the soooo nice sandy beach where we could walk for hours without any annoying stuff-selling folks, play beach volleyball, enjoy the warm water (maybe because so shallow for approximately 200 meters) ... what about a link? ok, it is a hotel i really can recommend to you especially in terms of value-for-money ratio, my dears: kyllini beach resort

and yes, the greeks have been very kind + friendly to us .... all greeks we have met and not only the 200 hotel employees and 10 ukrainian trainees making their living directly with us 700 tourists or folks making their living indirectly like taxi drivers + local farmers + tavern owners + gas stations employees and the like ... and yes, i still can speak some basic russian, at least the trainees understood what i have said ;-)

antio peloponnese, antio kyllini beach resort and see you some next holidays for sure ... there is still a lot to do / to see next time we didn't managed yet ~ e.g. the stinky sulfur bath which was approximately 1.5 hours walk from our hotel, the mountain villages + monasteries in the mountain stone walls close to olympia, delphi, athens, the east + middle + south peloponnese and the like :-)
