MY WORLD TUESDAY: TWO WEEKS NEWS ! ! !


I had many computer problems so i couldn't make any comments.
I have so much to show you!
First of all, today is Olga's tenth birthday!!!


My princess is already ten.
It's like yesterday when i hold her for the very first time.
My first baby!!!
Well, my baby a few days ago had her first concert.
She plays the quitar and her sister, Alexandra, plays the piano.
I was at their last rehearsal before the concert.

I won't tell you if they are playing good or bad.
I can't be objective.
They are my babies.
On Wednesday, March 25th, we celebrated a double celebration.
The Annunciation of Virgin Mary (Ευαγγελισμός της Θεοτόκου) and the Revolution of 1821 against the Turks (Επανάσταση του 1821).
This day and the Palm Sunday we eat fish (the other days we can't eat fish because of the fast).
After the march past (παρέλαση), we had lunch at my parents' house with my parents and my sister's family.








On Friday was the last day of school.
We have two weeks holiday for Easter.
The kids of kindergarten made little easter punnets with their teacher.


The parents and the kids offered gifts to the teachers of kindergarten and elementary school.



On Sunday (Palm Sunday, Κυριακή των Βαίων), we went with my sister's family for a day trip to St. John the Russian, Prokopi, Evia.



And we went for our after lunch coffee to a cafe' at N. Artaki, Evia.






I wish you all a great GREAT WEEK, A HOLY WEEK.
See you after Easter (Pascha, Πάσχα).

MY WORLD TUESDAY: AFTER A LONG WEEK...

After a looooong week, finally i had a relaxing weekend.
I can't say i did nothing because we are five and i always have something to do.
But i had a few private moments.
On Sunday the five of us and my sister's family went to a Greek tavern.


We had some vegetarian souvlakia (because of the fast).




But the kids had burgers and souvlakia with real meat.


Well, three weeks have left for Easter and you will see the Greek Pascha again ...

MY WORLD TUESDAY: IT ' S A PITY

I was very proud to say that i'm a Greek and i belong to the big European family.
I'm still proud of being Greek but not that i'm a European.
I've learnt as a Greek, that family supports you when you come up against hard times.
When you need friends to help you.
But not this time.
Not this family.
At a time that my country need the European support, everyone turned their back.
We made the strongest resistance against the Nazis at the WW2 and our country destroyed from the north to south.
And we managed to built our country all over again.
Without any help.
The only thing that the other countries did was to come and take our inheritance, our ancient treasures.
We didn't demand indemnification for the crimes of Nazis.
After all we became brothers in a united nation!
We opened our hearts and arms to all the foreigners that came to our land, for visit or ressidence.
But nothing of these count.
Not when money gets on the way.
I guess i'm too romantic.
I thought that other things are important.
It's really a pity!!!
