You know how it is. So he went to Zakynthos, the Greek island his wife Tinas parents come from, to see how he and his family would get on living there for a season before he had to face real life and get a job again.While they were there, however, it began to look like Greece could find itself out of the Eurozone any day the way the tense negotiations were going in Brussels. But Zakynthos is a resilient island, having seen off earthquakes and invaders over the centuries, and turned out to be an ideal base from which Ralph could launch a full-scale attack on the language, the music, and the culture in general, while his two kids were sequestered away in a village school.A warm-hearted account of life on a Greek island of Zante, written by someone lucky enough to have spent a season playing guitar, reading books, and walking the hills there.
