A middle-aged Greek man wearing several kilograms worth of gold jewellery has offered a young female tourist “the package tour,” witnesses at Athens’ largest ferry terminal have confirmed.
Nikos Papageorgiou, 46, was heard suggesting that the 20-year-old Swedish backpacker take “a trip to the three fingers,” a phrase that could be construed as a visit to tourist hotspot Halkidiki, but was more likely to refer to his amply adorned right hand.
Witnesses told The Tragic Traveller that the heavily bronzed and perfumed Papageorgiou – whose white linen shirt was open to the fourth button – had offered the girl “a taste of some spicy local sausage” as part of the deal.
“You know baby, all the ladies love my peninsula,” Papageorgiou told the clearly uncomfortable tourist while smoothing back his oiled, jet-black hair. ‘They just love how it thrusts out into the sea if you know what I mean.”
Papageorgiou appeared much less keen to sell a tour to the blonde girl when her 200 cm boyfriend returned from the bathroom.
