Skiathos Town: Off the Beaten Tracks

If you want to keep a memory of Skiathos Town other than a Greek Saint-Tropez, I suggest you to leave as soon as possible the old port, the Bourtzi and the endless motley procession moving up or down Papadiamantis Street. When you reach the end of the old harbor just before you arrive to the fish market, you will see some stairs. Climb them up.

There are a lot of things about Japanese culture that could be criticized and ridiculed — social harmony comes with a price –but just like this 90’s American hip-hop-punk-rock band claims their music to be, it’s definitely from another dimension.
