As regular readers of MIE know, I try my best to give a
balanced, though somewhat unhinged, view of the paradise where I spend more time
than anywhere else on earth. Tomorrow
that paradise has new Parliamentary elections.
The second for Greece this year. It is likely to be a close-pitched
battle between the current left wing ruling party (SYRIZA) and its predecessor
in power, center right New Democracy.
Neither is expected to gain an outright majority so the real drama will
be with whom they partner in any coalition.
But I don’t want to talk about any of that today. We’re in Scotland having had a delightful
time at Bloody Scotland, seen some breathtaking scenery, and grown to love our
dear Caro even more than before. To keep
that mood, I’ve decided to run a repeat of the idyllic beauty captured by my
love on Mykonos when she manages to put down her pencils and pastels and steal
away for a few hours from her portraits of children and dogs to visit her
special places of inspiration.
So, without further sycophantic groveling, here’s Mykonos in August through the lens of Barbara Zilly.
