  1. ΤΟ ΠΙΤΣΙΡΙΚΙ (pitsiriki), has become a dear friend. He blogs from Athens, Greece and though many posts are in Greek, he chooses to re-blog my posts…perhaps it is because I am Greek from my mother, Anastasia?

    His name is xristos, and I receive many lovely “Kalispera from Athens” (Goodnight) in my e-mails. I am proud to consider him a friend!
