More Memories of Greece




After reading about another impromptu roadside memorial for a little girl recently killed by a hit and run driver, I remembered others I'd seen years ago.

Rather than teddy bears, flowers, signs, pictures and candles tied to lamp posts or arranged on the ground, the Greeks construct a variety of formal memorials. Inside were bottles of Uzo, olive oil, candles and often a photo of the departed.

Wonder how many drivers have been distracted enough to cause accidents. In some particularly treacherous spots, there were several of these memorials.
