Life lessons from Mr Antonis // Mytilene
The stories of Mr. Antonis, 99 years old, are moments of the modern history of Lesvos. He narrates them to his friends as he enjoys his ouzo in a traditional kafenion. We met him at kafenion “The Kalnterimi» in Mytilene. “I never smoked a cigarette in my life but I drink ouzo and I will keep drinking it again and again” he said. Always with meze, the traditional way.
Kyr-Antonis is of those people who faced difficult times – “I fell but picked myself up,” he said. His experiences are life lessons.
