Gerasimos the life guard

Gerasimos is a Platrithia local working as a life guard at Dexa Beach near Vathy. He was raised on the island, spent his time in the Army, as do all Ithacan males, and now is settling into a job that suits him right down to the ground. Gerasimos is att the beach every day, gets to swim when he wants and doesn't need to feel guilty about it. Life could be worse than spending all Summer at the beach on Ithaki. No wonder he's smiling all the time. ... and what a nice guy to boot.
