There it is. Outta here now
Yes yes yes! Successfully navigated the information vacuum to enter the local bike rental system. It’s a longtime dream to ride the seafront of Thessaloniki.
Thessaloniki is such a nicer city than Athens. Pity it’s so humid. Otherwise, it’s tree lined, beautiful, and the waterfront right in the center closes the deal.
Another early damn flight. (just to thessaloniki)
Χριστός Ανέστη! “O grave where is thy victory? O death where is thy sting a ling a ling?” Ian McKenna in “Gods and Monsters.”
I first encountered “Poisson d’Avril” when Tuxedomoon was playing in Bordeaux in 1981. I stepped into a photo booth for an ancient selfie. When I saw the results, there was a fish taped over the lens and thus over my face. I asked a French friend what the hell that meant and he replied “Ah ha ha. Poisson d’Avril!” The fish of April. A most surrealist moment. The French tape small paper fish on each other on the first of April. April Fool’s day.
