A soirée in Dafni

There are in fact plenty of nicer bits of Athens, all of them characterized by the fact that they are nowhere near the city center. My relatives and friends have taken me to several of them, including Kifisia and Palio Faliro and Glyfada.

And so it was that I ended up at Souare bar in Dafni, owned by relatives of my relatives. (To be precise: cousin’s godfather’s daughter.) Once again, a street between the band and the punters, but at least no cars crawling in between this time.

As the singer put it:

Music brings people together..

… Admittedly there is a street between us right now.

Balmy night, cool takes on the last 20 years’ pop (my cousin’s bf on drums).

And me feeling every one of my 51 years as I was standing up all night, and had been walking all day. Which is what a town with adequate public transport does to you.

The singer is under 30. OF COURSE her name is Iphigenia.

… This comment occasioned several queries among my Facebook followers, including Ed Conway’s inevitable:

Does she moonlight during the daytime in maritime logistical problem solving? ????

That aside:

Did Greece ever have the saints names law like France?

They had something better, the full moral force of the Orthodox Church.

Can you say a bit more about this change in Greek names, please?
