Daily life on a greek island through the eyes of a local-alien, still 'foreign' even after more than 40 years residence. This 'foreigner' is a local-KIWI-alien so there is a New Zealand flavour to my writing. Photo above is the tranquil view from Pukehina Beach, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
I write. I create. I observe and record my life, after 40 years, in Greece. I love to create either with my handy craft, cooking or writing. Freeform always. Keep it simple, keep the interest, make it useful. I write about my garden sometimes, my grandchildren and the different culture and traditions. My New Zealand up bringing was so different from this way of life that I do truly feel like an alien at times. Greece is home but so is my kiwi 'homeland'. I am a citizen of both and an alien in both.
He looks a very resourceful man. Reminds me of me when I use to ride my bike back from my allotment overloaded with shopping bags full of vegetables.ReplyDelete
Riding with one hand in mid august traffic is not wise. But it happens all the the time.Delete
Wasn't Evel Knievel was it?ReplyDelete
His brother 'Stupie'!Delete
No helmet, and a loaded scooter. Hopefully, he makes it to his destination with no interference.ReplyDelete
They all overload scooters here but there really is a lot of traffic now and most of the drivers are city slickers and don't where they're going. Not a good comboDelete
He's not part Korean is he? They do nutty loads like that on small motorbikes.ReplyDelete
This one is from one of those countries up on the northern border. But they all overload here. Just wish I could get some decent photos of themDelete
Safety. Who needs safety lolReplyDelete
I'm sure it never entered his head that he might be an accident in the makingDelete
If he'd been in India he'd have managed another 20.ReplyDelete
You're right. I've seen those incredible photosReplyDelete
Not a good idea, but not as bad as you see in Vietnam and Cambodia!ReplyDelete
