In our travels through Greece we noted some things that were new to us and interesting or mildly entertaining. I’d like to share some of those things with you here.
In a main intersection in Kalamata, a bus had a flat tire. Traffic was tied up for hours.
Nine years before the 1986 earthquake which killed at least 20 people and injured about 300, the damage from previous earthquakes was evident. The fact that bottles could still stand upright on the shelving of this liquor store amazed me. Kalamata suffers many earthquakes. Say, is that Omar Sharif on the right?
And what a novelty to see horses and carts in among the motorized traffic in town.
The aroma of coffee roasting in an old style roasting machine had my mouth watering – nothing like that delicious smell if you’re a coffee drinker!
We were told that these giant jars were made to hold olive oil. The oil was for sale “on tap” at the local shops. Bring a jug and they’ll fill it for you.
There’s always something to see in Greece.
