Exeter City Football Club - the Grecians

http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/43093795

"It was a tale of two penalties as the first-half drew to a close at Blundell Park, before the Grecians were later reduced to ten-men when Kane Wilson picked up two yellow cards."

Why are Exeter City Football Club known as the Grecians?  There is an answer here   https://www.theguardian.com/football/2000/nov/01/newsstory.sport9   - the Siege of Troy was re-enacted in Exeter in 1726.

The Express Scopelitis approaching Naxos on a windy day

The Express Scopelitis, the small local ferry running between Amorgos and Naxos, arriving in Naxos on a very windy day.  I've travelled on the Express Scopelitis in a very rough sea, with the waves lashing against the windows of the lounge - but perhaps not quite as rough as this.............................!
