And there we were, at the beginning of this week, thinking that we finally had left the summer behind us. Today the temperature rose above 30 degrees centigrade. Our neighbours are firing up the barbeque right now. It’s 9 o’clock in the evening — or as the Greeks say, in the afternoon. This morning — yep, better get used to those time indications — at 2 o’clock, we dragged ourselves onto our balcony for a sip of the ol’ wine, some olives, tsatsiki and bread, and sat there almost naked in the hot sun, cursing the day we decided to make this move and wondering what could have come over us when we did it… How was your 1st of November?
For those who heard the news about the earth quake in Thessaloniki, rest assured, we learned about it over the news too. No need worrying, we slept right through it.
