Steve is the original lonely guy of Samos. Alexandra and I encountered Steve at the establishment we were having coffee at. Steve has retired from Germany and moved to Samos. Steve is in his mid seventies and every day he takes the bus from Pythagorio to Vathi and sits at the same table in the same seat and talks with as many people as possible. Steve admits he is a lonely guy as his two children have not spoken to him in 4 years. They received a loan to start a business in New York from Steve but the business failed so Steve thinks his two children are too embarrassed to talk to him so to avoid loneliness he sits and drinks coffee all day and chats up passersby’s . We left him and said see you later. We chatted with him regularly. Alexandra ran into Steve one day without me and he said, “Where s the old man?”. Was he referring to me!
