Winter Athens

“Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.”    John Berger

And I wonder, is Athens a man or a woman? Is she/he young or old? Beautiful, ugly, happy, sad, lonely, loud, sweet, open, …is she/he in love or falling out of love?

She/he is hometown and memory. Above all.
