kythera we dont see anymore, this  photo was taken in the early 80s, when it wasnt uncommon to see this on a regular basis on the main road of the island as the village folk would take their animals to the horafa to feed them , and in most cases if you were in a car you would have to stop to let the animals pass...thats potamo in the background ...

George C Poulos voting for the first time in Greek elections

Greek National elections - 20th September, 2015.

What a "buzz" that was.

But what an extraordinary system that operates in Greece.

I was handed the same sized pamphlet for every party. About 19 in total.

Most of the forms were placed in the garbage after use.

My immediate thought was why don't European countries adopt a preferential voting system ala Australia?
