These are knick knacks I bought in Greece when I was working there teaching English to children in a family in the 1970s. It was a difficult time then; there was a military regime and a great deal of student unrest, real bullets and tear gas were used in the demonstrations. There was a curfew and we had to be in by 9pm. I couldn’t speak the language but I had a wonderful time and I’d love to go back. I keep these in a glass cabinet at home.
