I spent the last 10 days in Greece and arrived home yesterday. I was in Athens and on a beautiful little island called Agistri which was an hour from the city by boat. It was my second time in Greece. When I went last year I started to learn a few words and this time I had a little vocabulary, maybe 100 words or more...

One day we'll all have a babel fish and communication will be so easy. Although maybe that wouldn't be perfect because learning languages is so much fun. When I went to Greece recently I started by working out the letters from maths. It was like you say, like deciphering a code!

It's funny, as I was writing my post I could almost hear you in the back of my head saying exactly what you commented! You're the kind of person that absolutely transcends time to me, I don't think I know off the top of my head how old you are, but when I see pictures of you I really couldn't think of a more unimportant or moot topic!  I have just put that Anais Nin book in my amazon shopping cart, I will absolutely read it as soon as I have a chance. And also, I love that you're having such an amazing time with the Greek culture! I have just started learning German, I'm not really sure why to be honest, but I don't have any one I can speak it to yet and I'm not very good at anything practical or conversational, even so it is so much fun and so thrilling filling your mouth with a brand new language! I can't wait until it becomes more second nature! Let's write soon!! (in fact, could you send me your address again..? hah!)

Thanks to your posts on the debt crisis I read the Current Affairs group. I really hate austerity measures.

The human race is capable of creating such beauty--art, poetry, music--that is can cause the soul to weep unabashed tears! When I lived in Turkey in the early '80's, and in Germany in the early '90's, I spend long hours over many many day exploring long abandoned sites, the usual tourists attractions,  and museums marveling at man's creations.  Now my traveling days are waning and I envy you...but am gladdened that we can will get the chance to experience these wonders through your eyes, words, and lens! Happy travels @annalee  

This was a walk I went on the other day, I felt like I was in heaven. I was in fact. I've walked around this hill hundreds of times but still feel like I found new routes and paths. It's not all that big but once you get there it seems to grow and grow. I came to a little peak and climbed

Beautiful.

Thank you so much for your sweet words about my cat disappearing. She came back this morning smelling very strange so I imagine she had been stuck somewhere small and damp for those 3 days! If only we knew what those little creatures got up to.. So glad she's home. Hope you are all well :-) xx
