About 12 years ago when I first visited Ireland I was disappointed how modern the housing was because the guide books only showed the quaint thatched roof cottages.
So in the interest of enlightenment over sales copy I am showing one of our ordinary photos of our ordinary Aliki village festival--the mix of the traditional and the modern. My pictures of young people jumping over the large bonfire didn't turn out.
This is the festival of Aghios Ioannis (St. John) on 24 June when the May 1 wreaths are burned. Free food and wine insure a good time for all.
