Favorite thing: Andreas sits at his favorite place in Sounio, waiting until the sun goes deeply down in the sea... Maybe he is thinking about Aigeas, the king of Athens, who was waiting Thiseas, his son, to come back from Crete alive.
Thiseas had been there to kill the Minotaur, as he finally did, and had promised to his father that his fleet would have white -and not black- sails, during his return. Unfortunately, Thiseas forgot to change the sails, Aigeas saw the black ones and he fall from this rock, as he was thinking that his lovable son was dead...
The Aegean Sea, which you see, took his name...
