That’s the spirit!

Χρόνια πολλά!

When last night at the Paramoni (the Eve) of the Agios Panteleimon festival the lights went out (presumably because of the humidity), the musicians didn’t stop a second, moved into the middle – like in the old days – and the crowd continued to dance around them in a circle, singing, only eerily lit by the battery-powered light the Chinese salesmen had taken off his stall outside the monastery and hung up into one of the trees.

I think it might have been one of my best panigyri experiences yet…

Like in the old days…
