That said, the evidence seems to be that the Brits and the Irish visitors were down this year. Americans are so few they don't register on the meter but are certainly appreciated by the islanders. I am encouraged by anything that shows Greece and the Greek islands in a good light to my fellow English speakers. So was pleased to hear about a concert tour that is designed to show the positive side of Greek culture.
More than a music show it will highlight poetry, video and paintings and feature some of the top names in contemporary music from Greece. Titled "The Other Side of Greece" it is one night only in London on 30 October. The performance is subsidized by the Greek National Tourism Organisation so tickets are only £10 for standing and £15 for seating. So if you are near London (or know anyone who will be) consider turning out for a night of celebrating the infectious Greek spirit.
