Photographer's Note

Nafplio is a coastal city located in the Peloponnese in Greece that is the capital of the regional unit of Argolis and an important touristic destination. Founded in antiquity, the city became an important seaport in the Middle Ages during the Frankokratia as part of the lordship of Argos and Nauplia, held initially by the de la Roche following the Fourth Crusade before coming under the Republic of Venice and, lastly, the Ottoman Empire. The city was the second capital of the First Hellenic Republic and of the Kingdom of Greece, from 1827 until 1834.

It is a delightful small town, full of beautiful narrow streets without traffic, with many cafes and taverns
I rarely eat ice cream, but the one in Napflio was original and delicious.

For me, a great joy in Greece was trying to read in Greek. Of course, as a physicist, I know the Greek alphabet well. But the pronunciation is different than I thought. For instance: I say beta, but it is vita. there are three "i" = eta is in fact pronounced i, also Ypsilon and iota. "mi pi" is b, "ni tau" is d. You can observe what is written there on the left side. And of course, many words, especially in science, have Greek origin. It is quite fascinating.
In Workshops just two other views from many.
