Laconia, Greece. Home land of the Spartans. Where everything was simple and concise. It remains so, even today. From our Laconic phrases to our fresh olive juice. Common people fighting every day in in the groves. Building a future for their loved ones. People in touch with their legacy. Who know exactly who they are and where they are heading. Rough, like the Spartan soil. Raw models for my children. A motto says that in order to plan your future you need to study your past.
