Brexit will strengthen European support for return of Parthenon Marbles, says Greek minister

Greece will step up its campaign for the return of the Parthenon Marbles from Britain and expects to win more support from European peers as Brexit sees British influence wane, the Greek culture minister said.

I met a couple of cyclists yesterday with all the touring gear. I asked what they were doing touring Kefalonia in January. They said they had cycled from France, through the Balkans to Astakos and then the ferry over to Kefalonia. After Kefalonia they planned to visit the Peloponnese. Luckily they had picked a very dry January, but it could have been very different.

Think I'd have picked September/October or April/May - but not January!

Unique oral history project set to cover all corners of Greece

A Greek not-for-profit organisation has been launched with the mission to create an archive of Greek oral histories that will give a fuller picture of the nation’s past.

The organisation, Istorima, will train 1,500 researchers who are below age 35 in oral history gathering methodologies. Once the training is complete, ekathemerini says they will travel across Greece to record the personal stories of up to 50,000 elderly people.

These will be curated and compiled into a large archive that will be available to researchers as well as the general public.

I would have picked one with a 125 engine fitted!
