IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY IN A FEW WORDS

I loved every second!
I could have stayed on for the concert next evening,
but also that was sold out!

This part of my story started 15th of May 2019 when I wrote about Dalaras on my page https://skopelitissa.net/2019/05/15/μάνος-χατζιδάκις/
A Norwegian friend saw it, wrote me and said she had an extra ticket for the concert and wondered if I would join her!!! My dream have been for many years to see and hear Dalaras in the Herodion.
We had very good seats and could see it all.
The amphie is very good built!
I have “been in love with Dalaras” since the winter 1983/4
when I heard on Greek TV a concert with him and others.
I did not understand a thing, but music can be enjoyed
without knowing the words!
The music just HIT me!
My dream came true!!!
At the end of the fantastic show the mayors of Smyni in Turkey and the one in Nea Smyrni, Athens, was asked to climb up to the stage.
All is in a program about how music can build bridges!
The concert was just FANTASTIC.
Just to sit at this nearly 2000 year old amphie theater,
under the stars in a warm summer night …
Aspasia Stratigou had a wonderful voice,
thanks a lot!
Wednesday19th of June morning:
I hate leaving my beautiful island, but sometimes I have to!
I had to pass by Skiathos, – more on that another day!
Here are some glimpses of my trip to Athens;
I flew Skiathos-Athens-Skiathos with Aegean/Olympic,
quick and good service. 177,71 E.
I met my friend Eva at the airport, she came from Oslo.
She flew back at 03.00, was going to work next morning.
We took the train in to town, 5,- E.
Next day the lady at the hotel said it was safer to go with the bus.
I took it from Syntagma, 6,- E.
Back on “Butterfly Island”
Here are thousands or more …
Have a lovely rest of the Sunday
and all the best from the coming week!
Keep on smiling …
