Driving in from Athens through the modern sprawl along the coast, I couldn’t understand how the third largest city in Greece could be so lacking in charm.

Greece's Mani Peninsula, in the Footsteps of Patrick Leigh Fermor again: Spring Break 2016, Breaking Bad on the Looney Front - Part 5

Patrick Leigh Fermor - that intrepid traveller who walked 2,500 miles across Europe in the 1930s when he was 18, then wrote about it 40 years later in several highly acclaimed books, he whose footsteps I vaguely, oh so vaguely, traced in Athos last year - lived his last years in Greece's Mani Peninsula, that middle tentacle hanging off the end of the Peloponnese.
