The Autumn beauties of Greece


The Autumn beauties of Greece

It may perhaps be a little difficult trying to write about how beautiful your country is while trying to convince people at the same time that you are being objective. It is even more difficult when you are writing about a beauty which has been so lauded by poets and discussed by philosophers. It is certainly tough trying to prove that something is or is not beautiful.

This month we have decided to show you, as objectively as we can, some of the beauties of Greece. Maybe you will agree with our choice, maybe not. Maybe this issue will encourage you to look for beauty wherever you may find yourself.

Whatever the case may be, we surely all agree with Dostoyevsky that “Beauty will save the world”.
