    In 1981 I took The Magic Bus to Athens. I went to Plaka, bought some little flat sandals and I island hopped all Summer. Back in Athens I met a Greek boy, he had wild red hair. He looked like a young Al Pacino. He brought me warm salted Almonds in the morning. We fell in love. I stayed longer than I should have, but eventually I left. At the airport he and I cried. He ran up to the viewing terrace and watched me go.

    I had long blonde hair, blue eyes and I was persued relentlessly by the Kamaki Greek boys😁 But it was only Constantine I responded to.

    Now, 40 years later, that red haired Greek boy and I reunited and he sent me the two songs from this film with the video clips…he wrote ‘try to understand’…

    In February, just before Covid-19 hit the world, this ‘Annabel’ went back to Athens. We met at the new airport. There is still something between us. Something sweet and beautiful.

    Where can I buy the film please, I think it would be lovely to send it to him?

      What a sweet story, Susannah, thanks for sharing it here.
      I’m afraid I can’t sell movies but why don’t you send him a link so he can watch it? He should be able to stream it without problems if he doesn’t want to download it.
