The soldiers who guard the Unknown Soldier at Syntagma, Athens, are called the Evzoni. I think they’re fantastic and not only cos they look like they could even manage to throw me over their shoulders. Last time Mr Mac and I were in Athens, we headed down to Syntagma Square for the big changing of the guard ceremony which takes place every Sunday morning. It’s quite the spectacular as the traffic is stopped for the band coming through and the new guard to march in to take their place. The marching is a slow and very choreographed affair , almost hypnotic and, I imagine, must be murder on the thighs*. This time though, Mr Mac and I only managed to see one of the more quiet affairs. Yes, you know it; I took photos.
