Gerasimos has lived in Anoghi on Ithaca, all his life. The world visits him. He's one of the friendly and chatty locals in this mountain village, who has had the pleasure of knowing people from all over the world through walking the few streets of his home village. His image has been broadcast on European documentaries and his talks to visitors to the island have Gerasimos pegged as one of the favorite people on the island. Before his retirement, Gerasimos worked on the land, as did most of his generation during the days before tourism.
