Olympic characters #4

German/Dutch/silly outfits
Originally uploaded by athens2004blog.

Holger (l) and Ralf (r) are from Germany and we spotted them at the beach volley. They're actors who come to Greece every summer - they're currently performing in 'Hair' in Thessaloniki, which is where their natty costumes come from. They'd come direct from the rowing where they were very pleased to see Germany win a gold medal. The reason Holger is wearing a Dutch hat is that he comes from a small town near the Germany-Holland border and they speak Dutch there. So he has a soft spot for them. Go Holger and Ralf!
