Coffee with Lord Byron

In Eleftheroudakis bookstore (free wi-fi in the coffee shop at 6th floor BTW), I met with Byron, the great poet. Although he was British, Greece considers him its own national hero. He died in Greece during the war of independence and his heart is buried in Messolongi.

Although he was known to be a heavy smoker, I put him on a non-smoking table. I hope the poet will forgive the small nuisance.
