All our Poros families have decorated for Xmas. Trees are dangling with balls and baubles. Lights flash and brighten the house and the neighborhood. And this year we have something extra to adorn with cheerful Christmas glitter

Around the house. Where else would I be?

Ancient Greek drama on sacred Greek soil
My grandaughter Poppi phoned me the other day, before we locked-down, to say her class would be attending a performance of the greek drama Antigoni the next day and would I like to come and see and take some photos for my blog. Of course I would!
The play was being performed amongst the ruins of the Temple to Poseidon, mighty God of the Sea, and the complex of buildings, meeting places and market in the surrounding area.
I arrived exactly on time, expecting to wait, as is usual, another half hour before it began but they had started dead on time. That was the first surprise.

Fish soup for supper but not your gourmet bouillabaisse. We are quite often given gifts of odd foodstuffs. A pig's head, stingray, a moray eel or this time a conger eel. Mougri in greek. The google translation is conger eel. It was certainly a sort of large sea eel with some ferocious teeth. K loves these opportunities to eat as his traditional ancestors once did.

We can feel that nip of winter in the air. Our first carpet will go down tomorrow to cover the freezing tiles in the living room. No rain but gale force winds and temperatures down to around 18o. Shiver
