Evzones freeze in Athens


Athens was covered by a good layer of snow on Monday night and the pictures seen from the Capital were magical, in most cases. Problems arose due to the freezing conditions and even the Presidential Guard outside Parliament, fell victim to the weather.
In the photographs, they can be seen being helped in the process of standing down from duty, by fellow officers due to the fact that their shoes (tsarouchia) have metal plates underneath and so are very slippery in icy conditions.

Despite the extreme cold, the officers who had guard duty didn’t flinch against the snow or cold and remained, as demanded by their position, totally still, at attention, in front of the memorial for the Unknown Soldier.
