GREECE TOUR GROUP HAIKU ECHOES 247: CORINTH CANAL

 

defy wrath of god

horse and slave power to dig

canal through isthmus

 

heed no heinous curse

tourists sight, not trade canal

steep rocky high wall

 

old dreams turn nightmares

connect two gulf and four seas

fit small passing cruise

 

dear folly construct

landslide risk and strong current

breathe life to dead town

 

farewell lunch at beach

tranquil coastline and landscape

resort for bankrupt

    Great pics and accompanying Haiku.
    Greece has lost it’s attraction for me unfortunately due to political unease. It’s culture and lifestyle still attract me though.
    Cheers.

      Greece has scenic coastlines and beach, but it over sells its tourism. Despite the bankruptcy, we don’t see social unrest; security is good, and cities all over clean. My impression is the Greeks don’t work as hard as other Europeans.

        Great comment, sounds like it still has good security, but like most countries with financial problems they will oversell the tourism scenario.
