The Evzones sweat it out in 40+ degree heat (PHOTOS)


Athens is burning and the Evzones are still guarding motionless, under these high temperatures, at the monument of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma.

Every hour the Evzones change and the supervisor tries, as much as possible, to make their watch easier, giving them water and wiping their sweat.

Due to the heat, there are no tourists in the area as we are used to seeing during the summer months.
