Sights to See

The weather is turning for the better.  The winds don’t come as often, nor do the rains.  I have taken a lot of walks these past two weeks.  Every time I walk, I think about how different the sights are from the sights in Lancaster; and then I think how similar they are as well–farm animals, gardens, and the occasional farm with the broken down car in the weeds.

    Jackie! I was just thinking about you today… Actually Faith Motter and I had a conversation about how awesome you were when you learned “Sandstorm” for the lunge track just for us 🙂 We both agreed that we miss you a lot and hope you, and your family, are doing well!

    Another great writing entry by you…so I can feel like I’m on a Greek island!!! I’m sure you could publish your year in Ikaria.
    In the 1980’s, I lived in Athens for 6 months. I had a dear Thia living there and other relatives I could visit often. Athens sounds changed since the EU. Looking forward to the next post!
    Aghapi,

      Yes, island life isn’t like Athens…how wonderful you spent six months there. Maybe now you are considering spending another six months or more!

    Enjoyed catching up on your blog today. You sure are giving your children a great gift to be able to experience another culture. We miss you at universal. You won’t know the place when you return! My sister in CA is also following your blog. Janet Craley and Ken too.

      Janet, I can’t tell you how happy it made me to see this message! Thank you for reaching out. I miss you all and will be home before too long. Please pass on my hellos to Ken and everyone else as well. Take care.

    Funny, I was thinking I had never seen so much water in stream and riverbeds on the island nor so much greenery. I guess you have to be there in the spring for that. Tell Elias Hronia Polla (sp?) and everyone else hello too.

    Hello, how are you?
    We (the hiking club) are thinking about walking from Karavostamo to Arethousa on the old path on Sunday 24th. I will let you know when it’s scheduled.

      That would be wonderful. Please keep me updated. Would my kids be able to come along? Thank you very much!

      • angelosk says:

        They would. There’s no mountain climbing involved. It’s an easy hike on intervillage lanes. I think you would like to know the old way up to Arethousa. Call me (local code) 41371 – evenings.

    Jackie,
    Iam really proud of the wonderful thing you have given to your family and yourself. A Year of sights and sounds, flavors, and sand in your shoes. A call to your roots. A new language and memories…keep up the good work! We are waiting to hear all about it! All our love… Christine, Amedea, Eugenia and Giulio
