On the Road Again #36


The voices belonged to Thomas and Kai who were soon to become our new travelling companions.
Thomas was a dashing student from Munich University and Kai his trusty foil.
Thomas had been schooled privately in Athens ostensibly to make amends for his father’s wartime activities in Crete as an officer in the Wehrmacht. The father seems genuinely to have had a Damascene moment in Crete, overwhelmed by the wrong being inflicted on those innocent people. In atonement, to salve his troubled conscience, he moved to Athens after the war, became a journalist and educated his son in the Greek tradition.
