The wrestler of Syntagma square

This statue was donated in Greece by lord Bute, around 1860. It’s a brass replica from Naples museum, representing a wrestler ready to fight…

The excessive use of chemical compounds and teargases, though, postponed the fight indefinitely…

 

Hush, Litttle Baby…

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town

Is Louk the New Che Guevara?

Sitting at Syntagma yesterday afternoon, I saw Louk (Loukanikos-the rebel dog) wandering around a little bored, looking for some action… I started taking some pictures of him, when a kind man rushed to introduce the dog to me in case I didn’t know him. So he said: “this is not a simple stray dog – this dog is the reincarnation of Che Guevara…”

So this phrase got me thinking: “All we need is an inspiration… Does it matter if it’s not human???”

P.S.1 Louk made his way to Wikipedia! I’m so proud of him
