in Memory of Manolis

A small tribute to my neighbour Manolis who died last month.  Manolis contracted leprosy as a child in Athens and his parents fought hard to prevent him from being sent to Spinalonga leper colony.  He was a great help in her research for Victoria Hislop when she was writing her best seller 'The Island".  He was a lovely man and he will be sadly missed by a lot of people.

  1. He looks like a lovely man. I'm glad he was recognised more widely before he died. I hope one day to visit Spinalonga.
