Saturday August 25, 2007 – 03:38am (PDT)Why do the inhabitants of the area around Niagara have flat foreheads and bulging ears?
Because when they wake up every morning they stick out their ears, “What’s that noise? What that noise?” they ask each other. And then they slam their foreheads: “Oh, it’s that waterfall again!”Concerning tourism, the Ikarians (and not only) behave exactly like the inhabitants of Niagara of the well known joke. Only that instead of bulging ears, the Ikarians are getting goggle-eyed. “Who are all these people? Who are all these people?” they ask each other when they go out in the morning. And then they slam their foreheads: “Oh, it’s those tourists again!”
That’s how thing are. Whatever we do, we are always unprepared.
I used to believe in “management” and “policies” (short, medium and long term) and the application of rules and laws. I was an advocate of “control”. After having lived in outer Greece (not Athens) for over 17 years, I am not so sure about all that anymore. I stick out my ears and I goggle my eyes and I slam my forehead, “Oh, it’s that life again! Oh, it’s that Greece!”
One thing I am sure of, though. WE NEED RAIN. Only a good rain can save us now.
I know that you two, Eleni and Nana, are straining and twisting your cervixes to make it happen. In great deep respect for your effort (also because you defy the ridicule), I am also applying
