summer in athens.

summer in athens.

Living in Athens isn't always easy. There is noise, pollution, virtually no parks... Most Athenians [myself included] occasionally complain about it. We dream of a greener city, a city less congested, a city more people-friendly. That is... most of the time. Because every now and then something happens, something magical... something that makes me realize how lucky I am to live here.

It's not about our heritage, the monuments or the museums. It's about some small pleasures, little everyday things.

A couple of nights ago I went to see a movie; an oldie... a wonderful japanese film called 'Rashomon', by a great director, Akira Kurosawa. Well...

I went to one of Athens' summer movie theaters. They are open-air theaters that operate after sunset. They're sort of a greek tradition. This one was located upon a roof. It was surrounded by shrubbery that muffled the sound of cars passing by. The gentlest breeze was blowing. The moon and stars were shining brightly. I felt a pleasant cloud surround me.

This theater served sandwiches and things, not just condiments. I had a most wonderful cheese pie and a delicious croissant sandwich. Oh... And like most theaters, it served alcohol too. I started with a glass of ouzo, then washed it down with two bottles of chilled MacFarland's red ale. Finally... I couldn't resist another guilty pleasure... I lit a cigar [a very rare occasion], and enjoyed it while watching the film.

I went home happy and smiling. Yes. No summer like the greek summer....
