Ithaca greece.  The faces and stories of local Ithacans.  2004

Dionisios Katriolis

Dionisios is a man who has his smile permanently fixed on his face  He's an Ag. Ioannis local who is truly happy living on his island of Ithaki.  Dionisios knows what it's like to miss it. He  lived in Australia for 30 years, North Balwyn, working at many various jobs from factory work to fishing,  making a living for himself and his family. He returned  to his birth place in 1985 and couldn't be happier with his choice. He likes that wherever he goes on the island, be it Stavros or Vathy, he knows everyone, and can always sit for a chat and a drink over a good conversation with people he knows and trusts.  Ithaki is in his blood, but Australia is not far from mind. Dionisios likes to remember the many friends he made there and makes a point to keep up his English.
