close window to return to the Locals
Yiannis Lekatsas
You go half way around the world, thousands of miles from anything and anyone you know, through thousands of life changes, and there, sitting in the corner of a local taverna, sits a man who regularly sold you fruit from a stand in Elizabeth street, Melbourne, on your lunch break over 30 years ago. What are the chances? Quite good when it comes to an Ithacan experience it seems. Yiannis, a Stavros local, like so many ithacans, has spent many years in Australia, where he worked and made a living for himself before returning to Ithaca in 1980.
