  Presidential guard
by b1bob

Thanasis and I walked around town to see Zappio (no, not a Greek rock singer, but the tomb of the unknown soldier) and the presidential guard. The guard wore short, brown ceremonial uniforms. They marched at each other slowly, touching feet, turned around and did it again for 2-hour intervals. It struck me as odd.
