A Day in the Life

Pelagia just found this short 15-second video online at a neat website called YouTube.com. We had been trying to think of a way to share this daily part of our life here in Greece with people. Check out the video.

Typically, these guys drive around in old, beat-up pick-up trucks, full of lemons and watermelons (karpuzi). They've managed to somehow rig up a loudspeaker system on the top of their trucks to announce this, and they then drive around residential neighborhoods terrifying people and disturbing the peace.

When we first heard this, and -- of course -- we didn't understand what they were saying, we thought they were going around spreading communist propaganda: "Capitalism is evil. Take back the means of production."

Hmm, come to think of it, I've never actually seen anyone buy anything off one of these trucks...
