Yiannis Morfessis

Yiannis spent his life working the land on Ithaca. He was born and raised on the island, living here all his life, nurturing and caring for the land of his ancestors. His father too was born in Vthy, but his mother has her origns in Kioni. In his hay day, Kioni may as well have been across the other side of the world. They were the days when one took a boat to go to the North island, the days before the road. He's now retired, but still does bits and pieces here and there when he's not meeting his friends at the Odyssey Cafe in the Vathy Square.
