My First Greek Cover!

Many thanks to Spyros for this awesome cover posted from Chania, Crete Island, Greece!
The beautiful stamp affixed on the top left corner belongs to the "Greek Popular Music" series. Issued on 16th Sept 2010, this stamp depicts one of the leading Greek composers, Vassilis Tsitsanis (1915-1984). Tsitsanis wrote more than 500 songs and is widely regarded as one of the founders of modern Rebetika.

The other stamps in this set features Giorgos Zampetas (0.20 euro), Stellos Kazantzidis (0.58), Grigoris Bithikotsis (0.72), Vicky Moscholiou (1.00) and Sotiria Bellou (4.80).
Next on the cover are three lovely stamps from the "Greek Islands" series, issued on 14th Oct 2010. They depict the Greek islands of Paros (lower left), Ithaki (middle) and Tinos (top right).
That's all folks! Enjoy your weekend!
