Ludwig Menzel: “It was a great pleasure to follow Loukia through Athens!”

EN/DE “I have experienced the city at its fullest and in so short time guided by a person who is knowledgeable in history, mythology and politics; she spoke of her city with verve and love and was so rich in knowledge that when we got home in the evening I was filled with stories and nevertheless knew that it was just a tiny part of what she had to tell us. It was a great pleasure for me to follow Loukia through Athens.
Dear Loukia, you see I am enthusiastic about the tour we had together and I am very sorry not to be able to come back to Athens as soon as I would have wished for.”
“Wie eingehend sich eine Stadt durch eine sowohl in Geschichte, wie Mythologie, als auch in Politik bewanderte Person in so kurzer Zeit erfahren läßt, die mit einer Verve und Liebe von ihrer Stadt erzählt, so reich an Wissen, das man Abends voller Geschichten ist und doch weiß, es ist nur ein Quentchen dessen, was sie noch zu erzählen hätte. Es war mir eine große Freude Loukia zu folgen.
Liebe Loukia, Du siehst ich verfalle in Schwärmerei, und ich bedauere es sehr, so bald nicht wieder nach Athen fahren zu können.”
