FINE CONVERSATION

 

Next to the Hotel Calypso is a fine secluded cove with lovely views and ample free parking. It is near Anavyssos, shortly after the kilometer 48 marker on the Sounion Road. There are tables and chairs, ample shade, a protected swimming area, rest-rooms, and other facilities (and you can combine it with an outing to the temple of Poseidon).

 

Entrance is free. We will be selling hot dogs (with salads), corn on the cob, and beer, to raise money for the 2012 voter registration drive. We encourage you to bring your Greek and other friends to share this traditional holiday.

 

So we don’t run out of food, please try to let us know you will be coming, by email (demsabroadgreece@gmail.com) or telephone(210-3227463) to Brady Kiesling, DAGR Secretary.

 

Also, we are looking for volunteers to make potato and similar traditional salads, to assist with ticket-taking, to help us clean the beach afterwards.

 

Though we hope you will bring your Greek friends to share the fun, FEC regulations (oddly enough, this is not a joke, alas) require that an American citizen pay for the hotdogs.

 

For the car-less, the beach is accessible by public bus. The KTEL Sounion bus (telephone 2108808081) has a bus stop next to the turn off for the Calypso Hotel, a two-minute walk above the beach. An efficient place to catch it is outside the Syngrou-Fix Metro station. Fare is €4.70. And we will arrange car-pools to return.

 

Any questions call Brady Kiesling 6946 578 290 or Alec Mally 6973 794 849
