When I was 18 I took off to the Greek Island of Kalymnos. Many folks I met there, upon discovering that I was American, asked if I knew “Tarpon Springs”. The reason for them asking was because so many people on the little island of Kalymnos had loved ones who had moved to the US and on particular Tarpon Springs. At one time, Kalymnos was one of the largest sponge harvesting operations in the Aegean. Likewise, Tarpon Springs became a Mecca for the same. Ever since those days I have wanted to (one day)visit Tarpon Spring. Today was the day! Here’s a bike covered in sponges just for fun. 🧽 🇬🇷 #tarponsprings#tarponspringsflorida#hellas#Greece#kalymnos#naturalsponge#spongediversupply

Fangen wir hinten an: Wir waren nach dem Spiel noch in der Gründungskneipe der Brigata Giallo-Blu, den Ultras des größeren Vereins ins Verona.
Jeder der Tim Parks "Eine Saison mit Verona" gelesen hat wir da kurz mitfühlen könne.
2-3 Bilder an der Wand lassen absolut Gänsehaut entstehen.
Zudem hab ich vorm Spiel 2 Rapid Wien Fans kennengelernt, die sehr plaudertaschig unterwegs waren. Einer war auch noch großer Fan vom italienischen Fußball, wodurch wir flott einen gemeinsamen Nenner fanden.
Und darüber hinaus war das Spiel auch noch krass. 2:3 nach 2:0.
Es dürften auf den 750km Rückweg in den 1-2 Bussen ein paar Sektkorken knallen... An sich war die Schüssel Bentegodi ansonsten natürlich einfach nur massiv leer und es sind auch keine Esel geflogen, aber trotzdem war es überraschend unterhaltsam.
Marathon is a town near Athens. The name of the “Marathon” comes from the fact that it tests one’s durability. When Persians were defeated in 490 BC, Phedipiddes, a Greek soldier, ran a 42195 meters long road in less than 3 hours to deliver the glorious message. Unfortunately, he died right after giving the news. After a while, the road Phedipiddes ran became a place where marathons are arranged in the name of the soldier. The town also has a Marathon Museum and Marathon dam that are worth to see.
Marathon, Atinaya yakın bir kasaba. Dayanıklılık koşusu olarak kabul edilen Maraton Koşusunun adı buradan geliyor. MÖ 490 yılındaki savaşta Persliler yenilince bunu Atina'ya bildirmek isteyen Phedippides adlı asker 42195 metrelik mesafeyi 3 saatin altında koşup müjdeyi ilettikten sonra ölmüştür. Askerin anısına bu mesafe arasında koşular düzenlenmeye başlamış ve günümüze kadar gelmiştir. Maraton Müzesi de kurulmuş olan kasabanın yakınlarında Maraton barajı da görülmeye değer.
On 13 December 1940, Adolf Hitler issues Directive No. 20, describing his plans for an attack on Greece in March of next year, when the weather has improved. He starts his Directive with the following words: ‘The outcome of the battles in Albania is still uncertain. In the light of the threatening situation in Albania it is doubly important to frustrate English efforts to establish, behind the protection of a Balkan front, an air base which would threaten Italy in the first place and, incidentally, the Rumanian oilfields.’
Like described above, one of Hitler’s main concerns is the vulnerability of the Romanian oilfields to British bombers operating from Salonika, Greece. And his fears are somewhat grounded, as the British have repeatedly urged the Greeks to allow them access to air bases in the Northern Greek provinces for just that reason. But so far, the Greeks have refused, to avoid a provocation of the Germans.
Another important motivation for ‘Unternehmen (Operation) Marita’, is the instability of Mussolini’s regime. The Italians are losing in East Africa, Egypt and Albania and support for the fascist party is at a low among the Italian population. So, to secure his southern flank for the upcoming war against the Soviet Union, Hitler plans to invade Greece through Bulgarian territory. He expects the Bulgarians to cooperate if territorial concessions are promised.

Secondo 'Sky Sport', Napoli e Verona si sono incontrate nuovamente per il mediano olandese di origini marocchine. E ora la distanza tra i due club è davvero minima: i partenopei, tramite il proprio direttore sportivo Cristiano Giuntoli, hanno alzato la prima offerta di 10 milioni di euro arrivando a 12 milioni più 3 di bonus.
Un affondo deciso, che come detto riduce in maniera sensibile la distanza con il Verona: il club scaligero chiede 17/18 milioni di euro per lasciar partire Amrabat. Con un piccolissimo sforzo da parte di entrambi i club, l'affare sembra insomma destinato ad andare in porto.
E l'Inter? Nonostante anche i nerazzurri ci stiano provando concretamente, in questo momento il Napoli è nettamente in pole per Amrabat. E, sempre secondo 'Sky Sport', potrebbe chiudere l'operazione già la prossima settimana.
Que tal passar um final de semana longe da agitação das grandes cidades gregas? Então, Galaxídi é uma excelente alternativa. Distante apenas 3hs de carro de Atenas, você encontrará na região um bonito litoral, formosas montanhas e florestas, aconchegantes restaurantes, mosteiros, e como não poderia ser diferente na Grécia, as riquezas históricas.
Destacamos como pontos que merecem ser visitados, o porto principal da cidade, que além de fornecer uma linda vista, abriga muitos bares, restaurantes e lojas. Próximo, há também uma floresta de pinheiros plantada por crianças no início do século XX. De Galaxídi sai uma estrada em direção à montanha e chegando até o Mosteiro da Metamorfose, que fornece uma vista privilegiada da cidade e de seus arredores. Outra opção é uma antiga mansão construída em 1870, que atualmente abriga dois museus, um que expõe acervo marítimo e o outro uma coleção arqueológica, com peças que remontam o ano 3200 a.E.C. Em resumo, com certeza será um ótima oportunidade para relaxar e mergulhar no cotidiano de uma charmosa e tradicional cidade grega.

...Ready For The Truth?...
The truth shop, Jorge Bucay
One man was walking through the narrow streets of a small town. He stopped a few moments at each window, in every business, in every square. When turning round a corner he suddenly found himself in front of a modest store where the marquee was blank, puzzled walked towards the window and pulled his face to the glass to look inside the dark shop window … inside, there was just this easel holding a handwritten sign announcing: “Shop of the truth”
The man was surprised. He thought it was a fancy name, but could not imagine what they sold.
He approached the young lady who was on the first counter and asked: -Excuse me, this is the shop for the truth? ‘Yes, sir, what kind of truth are you looking for: partial truth, relative truth, statistical truth, the whole truth?
So here they sold the truth! He had never imagined that this was possible, to get to a place and leave with the truth! it was wonderful. -“The Full Truth!” the man replied without hesitation. “I’m so tired of lies and falsifications,” he thought, “I want no more generalizations or justifications, deception or frauds.” – The Full Truth! – he ratified.
Well, sir, follow me.
The young lady accompanied the client to another sector and pointing ou to a dour-faced salesman, she said: -This gentleman will help you.
The seller stood up and waited for the man to speak. -I come to buy the complete truth. -Aha, sorry, do you know the price? -No, what is it? He answered routinely. Actually, he knew he was willing to pay anything for The Whole Truth.
If you take it, the salesman said, the price is that you will never be at peace again.
A chill ran down the man’s back, he had never imagined the price was so high. -Mnnn …tha.. thanks, sorry … he stammered.
He turned out and left the room looking down.
He felt a little sad to realize that he was still not ready for the absolute truth, that he still needed some lies to find some rest, some myths and idealizations in which to find some shelter, some vindications for not having to face himself. “Maybe later,” he thought …
