Sattelite city

housing hania chania

Our economic migrants like to keep up with what's going on in their own countries. These satellite dishes help them to keep up with what's happening beyond the Greek borders.


  1. Long live the channels of communication.
    The case of Iran makes us appreciate them even more.
    There's a dish on my little rented house I think; now all I need is a TV.

  2. I love wandering Hania's streets. thank you. aloha-

  3. the all pervasive dishes and cables!

  4. I think these are all the satellite dishes for Cable network...This is so beautiful !!

  5. In our area (central Greece) there were always Pakistani and Indian workers, even before the recent blooming of migration. I have a very vivid memory from a big family that used to live in a small basic house that was built using concrete bricks. On top of this house there used to be a big satelite dish with a diameter of about 2 meters. It instantly made an impression on top of that small "hut" and that was before everyone got a Nova dish antenna. But yes, it was vital for them to keep in touch with home....so all this effort was really understandable. :-D
