Ithaca Greece - People living on the Greek island of Ithaki. 2005
Christina was born in Lefkada, but has been living in Lahos in the north of Ithaki, for a lifetime. Christina was originally lured to the island by her now deceased husband, and since then, has not had a thought of leaving. She has her community and neighbours, her work on the land and in the house and her friends. She's happy with that. Christina has the deep lines of a heavily worked woman, one of many in the village of Lahos, but still smiles with the excitement of her youth at the wonder of everything. Tourism or no tourism, Christinas' life continues as it always has.
