Take That!

I was walking through Patatiri, the port on Alonissos today with a friend who spends time on the island. He shouted something at a motorcycle heading towards us. The motorcyclist stopped next to us, said something in Greek*, reached into the bag on his bike, handed my friend a cucumber, then handed me one, and rode off. There was no smile, no goodbye.

The cucumber was still wet where it had been cut from the vine.

* I just picked these five minutes ago.

    That’s hilarious! As an avid gardener I can appreciate the motorcyclist’s enthusiasm for the just-cut cucumbers. It was a very nice gesture…don’t looka gift cucumber, etc…
