from Nike in Katerini, Greece: Hunger

Delphi

July 7. 43 new cases yesterday. 36 of them were from tourists tested at airports.
The post from Anne Chappel on hunger in these times was most unsettling. There are situations in the press here too. The elderly and the very young are being found passed out from hunger in doorways of shops where they go to smell food. I do believe the government of Greece has done a great job during this Covid crisis but I wish they’d pay more attention to its citizens than to bringing foreign citizens here to get money from them.

In the meantime, and just because this place is so special – here’s a picture from Delphi. The place where the two eagles met, sent by Zeus, one from each side of the planet to find the centre of the world.
Delphi contained temples, an amphitheatre for plays and concerts and an arena for athletic games to provide nourishment for the body, mind and soul. And of course it was the home of the oracle.
