For many, the Exoghi Panighiri (Ag. Marina Festival) is the big favourite, and this year, as other years there were no disappointments. Lots and lots of people everywhere. I think the dance floor only emptied during the speeches. A cooler night meant it was more comfortable to dance and that's what was on the agenda, dancing til dawn. Inbetween dancing of course, there are little sojourns to the bar and the kitchen for souvlaki. The festival raises money to maintain the church, and this year, after a little damage by the earthquakes, this money will be well allocated. Ag. Marina church is a beautiful church which lays at the core of northern Ithaki, it's blue domes heralding the small village on the mountain of which it is the center.
