Another Greek Tragedy

Readers know that the founder of this Club had founded the Athens Strollers, in his years in Greece. It is with great grief that I draw the words that follow. The wildfires in the outskirts of Athens are burning down a significant ‘lung’ of the Greek capital. Tatoi is a large forest, corresponding to what Athalassa is for Nicosia, but multiple times larger. Tatoi lies just below Parnitha, the main mountain overlooking Greater Athens.

You can imagine that there exist(ed) a good number of trails, which the Athens Strollers have walked time and again. With the present fires, it feels as if one part of myself and my memories is burning down. May this catastrophe end immediately and may it be the last one. (Photo credit Yiannis Kolesidis)
