Athens, 1973

Conscious of my tight budget, I tried to sell some blood in Athens. But the hospital turned me down; the trip through Europe without much food had taken its toll and my blood was not up to par. I decided to take the ferry to Crete and relax for a few days in the sunshine, to eat well, and then to return to Athens where I would try again.

This photograph is taken from the deck of the overnight ferry, awaiting departure.
