It is not easy learning to live in a different country. I am sharing my experiences and hope someone will find it useful whether living here in Greece or any other country.

Best Time

I have not been to many places since I have lived here. Sometimes I sit and think about the past, (which I know you are not suppose to do). I break the rules sometimes. Life is not always forward, but some things of past good times once in awhile. Christmas in Rhodes, Greece is a favorite of mine. It was not freezing cold, just enough for cold rains and some hail. We had a good nights sleep and woke up one morning before Christmas and had some snow on the ground. I told my wife,"did we die and wake up in Alaska"? It was very unusual and I have been to many islands, and have never seen snow on a island. Going out at night, I teased my grand daughter with a snowball fight. Summers are nice but sometimes too hot. It was nice to have a cold visit with relation. Life is short, maybe we can go back sometime. ~~~CcP~~~8-16-2017

On The Beaches

I am not a beach goer but on occasions I do. The only thing that gets my goat is behind hotels. There are chairs on the beach to sit in or lie in, if you just want to watch and not swim. Some hotels provide this service. Then you have the all - they - can get out of you hotels. They charge the minimum of 5 Euro which is about 6 US dollars to sit in a chair. I don't know what the law is here and I don't care, but I think the beach is God's creation not the hotel. Then you have the old ladies that lie with their sagging braless boobs. (I pray I never wake up with one of them). Well hell it's Greece. Enjoy ~~~CcP~~~7-6-17

Bus tours in Greece is one of most affordable modes of transportation. They are relaxing, air conditioned, (a must for me). Some are now equipped with WIFI,radio a dvd monitors. I have not seen a tour bus with a bathroom, but some say they have them. If you are a go to the bathroom often person they make rest stops often, at restaurants and gift shops. One word of caution, most stops are expensive and the food is prepared fast and not too good. Best advice is to take a small lunch and water, or just buy a pre-made sandwich. If you take a two day tour the price will include hotel with breakfast. Some tours have very nice hotels and the prices are reasonable. Now on with our tour. Me and my wife took a two day tour. First stop was Pozar Baths, known as the city of waters. The water comes from mountains, the temperature is average 37c. They have 48 individual baths and 6 indoor pools. It is highly recommended for respiratory and circulatory conditions. The benefits are health and well being. The area is also known as hot water. For United States people it is like Hot Springs, Arkansas. Second day. Waterfalls, Edessa.It is located in Northern Greece, in a forest area. Very large and century old trees. Beautiful running streams and water falls. Nearby restaurants are available. The prices are a little high, but the cool air and shade, is worth the price. Visiting Greece for vacation? Consider a bus tour you will not be disappointed. ~~~CcP~~6/25/17

Greek Women

True, Greek women are very beautiful. But that is not the purpose of this post. Greek women are caring, religious and the best wife you can find. (If that is what you are looking for). Coming from another country I believe mostly men think, they have found a slave to wait on them hand and foot. This could be true in some cases I guess. Most women don't want any help like hanging clothes to dry, or washing dishes. I believe this is old customs. In the world today both parents have to work to survive. If just the husband works and comes home tired, yes he needs to rest. But they often forget the wife, (if she has children) has spent the day taking care of children, maybe some are sick, etc. Washing clothes, ironing, preparing meals, maybe working in the hot sun in the garden. Then comes bed time. The man is rested now well feed and wants a little loving. Holly cow, give her a break. More to come, thanks for reading. ~~CcP~~9-5-2017
