Ithaca greece.  The faces and stories of local Ithacans.  2005


Akrivi has spent her entire life on Ithaca except for a few months here and there during the Winters, when she stays with her children in Patras.  She enjoys seeing her sons, who are sailors, but Akrivi misses her house and her garden in Platrithia and so can't stay away from Ithaki too long. There is a close knit community in Platrithias / Lahos which keeps a watchful eye on all its' inhabitants,  and gives Akrivi all the company and support she needs.
