It is not easy learning to live in a different country. I am sharing my experiences and hope someone will find it useful whether living here in Greece or any other country.

I have much to learn about Greek customs. This month is Carnival, like the New Orleans Mardi Gras I guess. The last weekend is full of celebration, lots of eating, flying kites and basically having a good time. Sunday is cheese day, (I love cheese, good day for me, Ha!) Monday starts other breads and macaroni, since fish is not allowed. I don't care for some fishes, tuna is ok, but the squid, octopus does not appeal to me. When I was young I loved to fish and catch catfish, it was good then but as I got older I guess I just lost my appetite for some fishes. Like I said I have much to learn and the country and customs, I learn a little at a time. ~~~CcP~~1-22-2015

Cold Days

The first time I have seen so much snow since I moved here. The last three days I have stayed inside, because it is windy rain and snow mixed. Temperature 35 degrees. Is not really cold but best to stay inside unless you need to get out. One good thing is the snow does not stick on the ground. The ground is not frozen, so it melts when it hits the ground. It is pretty to watch. Be glad to see spring arrive, has been a long wet and cold winter. Looking forward to going to the sea and visiting other island this summer. ~~~CcP~~02-11-2015
