French students’ Little Odyssey takes in Corinth Canal


Three French law students from Sete in southeastern France are seen canoeing in the Corinth Canal, which separates the Peloponnese from mainland Greece, Friday. The students are on the final leg of a canoeing trip to Istanbul which they have dubbed L’Odyssette (The Little Odyssey). The route from the coastal village of Sete to Istanbul covers around 7,000 kilometers. The French students – Thomas Puech-Maurel, Nil Roux and Sonia Verducci – hope to reach the Turkish city before Christmas. [Vassilis Psomas/EPA]
