I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.
The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

As parts of northern NSW and south-east Queensland flood, the levee at Lismore overflows and the SES says it was unable to reach some people
The remnants of ex-Cyclone Debbie have been pushed out to sea. This image was taken by a Japanese weather satellite last night, about 8pm AEDT.
Spare a thought for emergency services in Queensland, who have been going non-stop since before Cyclone Debbie hit the north of the state on Tuesday. There has been little respite in the past 24 hours as the cyclone’s remnants, now a tropical low, moved to the south-east, bringing torrential rain, damaging winds and dangerous surf. On Thursday alone emergency services saved the lives of more than 85 people stuck in flood waters in Queensland.
President Nicolás Maduro ‘is now the national assembly’, says assembly’s leader after court rules it can assume congressional duties
Venezuela has lurched further away from democracy – and closer to confrontation with its regional neighbours – after the pro-government supreme court assumed the legislative powers of the opposition-controlled congress.
Park Geun-hye can be detained up to 20 days during investigation into accusations of bribery and abuse of power that led to impeachment
South Korea’s disgraced former president Park Geun-hye has been arrested and jailed over high-profile corruption allegations that already ended her tumultuous four-year rule and prompted an election to find her successor.
That retaining the Scottish title was a given for Brendan Rodgers when he took control at Celtic should not detract from the manner of that accomplishment. The fans will cherish a sixth title in a row and well they might. The approach of the Celtic players from the first minute of this season, added to memory of the 1990s when those supporters looked on as Rangers lorded it over all and sundry, will contribute to worthwhile celebration.
The issue of available finance equalling success is overly simplistic. Ronny Deila, Rodgers’ predecessor, enjoyed resource which dwarfed the rest of the division but he did not achieve the dominance or style produced by the former Liverpool manager this season. There are many other examples, notably Ally McCoist’s recent failure to win promotion from the Scottish Championship when Rangers had far more personnel and financial power than the opposition. Thankfully, football is not yet an exact science.
Eoin Morgan has no concerns about an eight-team Twenty20 tournament being potentially damaging to county cricket. The England limited‑overs captain insists that the project does not represent a gamble and is long overdue.
Morgan was roped in to speak at Monday’s charm offensive when the England and Wales Cricket Board briefed representatives of the domestic game about the plan and relayed his experiences of playing in the Indian Premier League and Australia’s Big Bash – the two competitions it is hoped will be rivalled from 2020.
