   In the light of the PASOK victory of the 4th of october, does this mean the end for the tatoi palace renovation ?

A very good question.
Considering the miserable state of the Greek economy, and the rabid anti monarchism of PapaAndrew and his Pasok pals,I would say that the restoration will definately be either postponed or cancelled all together!
Honour all men.
Love the brotherhood.
Fear God.
Honour the king.

    I seem to have taken my eye off the ball as far as greece is concerned for several years now. Though I see the politicians of the present day sound just as lovable & adorable as they were back in the 90's.    :)
        I can never see this project getting off the ground, its back to square one.

   Thats a very touchy subject in Greece at the moment, & there was talk of selling off Mon Repos at one stage.

I think at least it give it a chance for private money to take care of the place. The Greek Government is plain broke. Period !

Thanks for posting the link !

I try to put this photo probably in Tatoï the 1900' but it was perfect at that time ! I do not know why it is in our album. I only post it to compare it with the previous one.

I can't believe no one will buy Tatoi, if only to keep it from falling to ruins. I wish the British RF would buy it since it's the DoE's family buried there.
