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


Irini is an Ag. Sarantas local. She lives on her own without family or husband in the house she was raised in.  The family home is the last of the houses in the Ag. Sarantas district.  Irini has no shops near by or close neighbours to help her out when her legs just won't go. She needs the help of her walking stick to get out and about, so life is pretty hard for her.  Despite her difficult circumstances, this woman has kindness written all over her face. When I asked her how she manages, she replied, "Well, what can you do"
