Ithaca Greece

Costas and Marina

These two locals travel back and forth from Sparta in the Peleponnese to Ithaca. They've lived in Australia too for quite a few years and thus have a pretty good Aussie anccent when they speak English.   Costas drives a taxi around Ithaca and Marina is chef at Rementzo in Frikes.

Costas admits it's difficult to know two homelands.  "When you're in one you want to be in the other" he says.  They both love the life here and that's what keeps them put in Greece now.  "People in Australia just don't go out" says Costas, and going out, being in the streets and the tavernas is what Greece is all about.
