Last Sunday saw me driving to Rethimno where I took a walk through the old town, before picking up my daughter from her basketball meet. There were a lot of tourists walking in the same places where I went. Here are some of my photos.
The tourist: Beautiful view!
Me: Where's that sewer smell coming from?
The tourist: A lovely quiet taverna overlooking the sea!
Me: How legal is the location of that restaurant?
The tourist: Graffiti! Ugh!
Me: Hm. I do indeed smell a rat.
The tourist: This is so romantic!
Me: This is bound to be over-priced.
The tourist: So close to the water's edge!
Me: Too close to the water's edge.
The tourist: Looks so fresh!
Me: How long has it been sitting there?
The tourist: The perfect spot!
Me: Paying for the view.
The tourist: Souvenirs!
The tourist: Nice vintage stuff!
Me: No price tags, ie I probably can't afford it.
The tourist: That sounds cheap!
Me: The dolmadakia are probably canned.
The tourist: Coffee in the shade...
Me: ... right next to the roar of the roadside.
The tourist: Oh... can't they replace it?
Me: The most perfectly designed flag ever. It will never need replacing.
Greece can be lovely to look at, but these days, it is very challenging living here.
