Amazing generosity ...

It is no secret here, my wife has been very ill ...

Hopefully things are now on the mend. Today we went out for a walk, in the summer sunshine, and we bumped into many friends on the way. Everyone seems to want to hear the story, offer encouragement and try to help with a few words ...

Today Dimitris, who is a kamaki on the harbour, called to the house, with some set honey, to be mixed in warmed milk with a cube of Greek chocolate, and a hint of chili powder. This is to help with making the veins strong and increase the appetite. All ingredients were left with us ...

On the Paralia, Spiros rushed out of his taverna, he was worried he had not seen her for a few days, and was concerned. He sat us down and returned with a polystyrene box, he insisted we take and use the contents.
It was a new pot of Royal Jelly, and he gave precise instructions like a doctor in its use ...

As we neared home, Eleni came out from her taverna, and another discussion took place, and a few moments later we returned with some lovely fresh fish soup to help out ...

With all the problems that Greece has its people still do their best for their neighbours ...
