Serbian friends ...

I seem to have quite a few at the moment ...

A few days ago, I met a family from Serbia, I helped them out. Now they seem to return, almost on a daily basis. Quite the happiest family group you could ever meet. Serbians are Orthodox, like the Greek people, so linked by their beliefs as well as not being too distant from Greece.

In the process of helping the man one day, his wife's photo, slipped out from a hiding place in a document. His wife nearly fainted with excitement. She never knew he kept a photo of her there. In addition he has many photos of icons, religious pictures for all different causes. None of which I understand, but clearly very important to them all ...

Yesterday they brought me a gift of chocolate, along with 'three kisses' from each family member.

There have been a steady stream of Serbian people over the last few days, many very happy and seem to know me. Yesterday a young couple who laughed and chatted as if we had known each other for years. Even SWMBO who met them, said, you must have met them before. It seems the personal recommendations are going quite well at hotels up the road ...

They have been a shining light these last few days, which have been testing to say the least. Still the weather remains very warm, and very humid. Sapping energy as well as making your body act like a squeezed sponge. Water in and out, almost immediately again through the pores. That accompanied by the 'lovely feeling' of sweat running down your neck, when you least expect it ...

We must be building up for another thunderstorm soon, to clear the air if nothing else ...

17:00hrs - Cup of tea time

31.4 degrees and 75% humidity, down from the 90% this morning ...


SWMBO & Junior are off with friends to the beach, for an evening swim. Someone else is off on a sadder journey too, the funeral bell is ringing at Tries Hieraches ...

23:00hrs - Humidity now 85% and 27.4 degrees. A perfect excuse to drink beer, and crank up the aircon ....

  1. It seem so strange that it's so hot in summer, but in winter it can be quite cold with snow sometimes.
