Greece, May 18:
Photo 1, Stavros Melissinos, poet and sandalmaker. Notes on other Melissinoi.
Photo 2, The old location of Melissinos' sandal shop, 89 Pandroussou Street, Plaka, Athens. He is now at 2 Aghias Theklas Street, around the corner from the Monastiraki Metro station.
Note: When taking the E95 bus into central Athens from the Venizelos airport, it may be quicker to get off at the Ethniki Amyna stop and take the Metro the rest of the way. Since this stop is not well identified for the novice, note that the E94 bus terminates at Ethniki Amyna. The bus ticket is also valid on the Metro.
