Patrick Leigh Fermor died this weekend. I read Roumeli and Mani on my first trips to Greece, and he helped me appreciate that it was good thing to be tourist, to take in local culture, and the consider the confluence between Greece’s Modern, Ottoman, Byzantine, and Classical past.

Here’s a nice obituary.
