However, this is a special occasion.

It’s the times when Ikaria was an island of mass exile: 1947-1948 in the peak of the Greek Civil War.
I am dedicating this post to the memory of my grandfather on my father’s side, who I hardly met. My motivation was to blow a horn of courage to today’s Greeks and in particular to my friend Nana, the light of my eyes, who recently farewelled Athens and moved to Ikaria.
