In 1968 I went to Greece and it was a very long holiday away from my banking career .. I was dressed in the finest clothes alright and I didnt listen to Bob Dylan for at least a year so my head was clear of the protest songs of the 1960s.
However I had one interesting meeting with a man from Athens and it was apposite to comment that he was an army man from the Greek army and we just by coincidence had been staying in Athens and had had a great time. So it was great that this was a conversational success with the Greek Army Colonel and we continued in some off hand way to talk about matters concerning Athens and Greece .. it as remembered was
enlightening energising and romantic .. He proposed to me .. at least he made the guys at home jealous ... takes a greek guy especially the Army to get the ball rolling once more .. lovely reflections on Athens and Greece .. great stuff!
