Excursion to Corinth, with the Freinds of the Archaeological Institute at Athens.
Helen is the current President of the "Freinds" in Athens.
The Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens was founded in 1981 to provide an independent Australian representation in the Greek archaeological field and to promote in Australia ancient, mediaeval and modern Greek studies.
A special function of the Institute is to provide facilities for Australian scholars and students who need to spend time working in Greece. Since its foundation, the Institute has established a residence in Athens for visiting scholars and students and a permanent office, and is developing a library. The office provides an intrastructure in Athens to support the Institute's important excavations at Torone, for which it is jointly responsible with the Athens Archaeological Society.
In addition, the Institute sponsors distinguished visiting professors to Australia, provides Fellowships and Scholarships to Australian students of archaeology and organises summer-schools in Greece.

After our grandfather, Theo Andronicos from Potamos, died in 1948, all contact with the Kytherian side of our family was lost. In 1982 when the opportunity came to take a trip to Europe, I jumped at the chance to include Kythera in our itinerary. We stayed in Livardi and Valerios was our taxi driver during our five day stay. On one of our excursions he stopped his taxi and suggested we take a photograph of our three year old daughter sitting on a donkey that was tethered by the roadside.
