The Grape Therapy was taking place in Azogires, magic vilage in the mountains above Paleochora. We were staying in Alfa hotel, had late breakfasts in Alfa café and took it really easy, day by day doing a bit we learned how to pick grapes, how to make traditional wine press and than we pressed them with our feet. Fresh air in the mountains, breathtaking views from vineyards, fresh tasty food and great company, what more you need to know to sing up for next year?? I will see you there :-)

My birthday this year was rather special ,like every year my friends remembered me even though I never remember them . A day of someones birthday can be very emotional  when friends appear   out of nowhere  . to remind you that you are not alone , you are not alone  on this strange world .
And when a man stands alone on his birthday  he feels rather strange and then his friends appear to remind him he exists and that they care  ,  that is exactly what happened to me this year again .from Ioannas surprise to paint the cafe  garden wall with  a  beautiful desing  ,to John with his Violin playing the most emotional songs just for me  , to Ruth with her so special portrait of myself to Stavroula gorgeous sea compus and all those lovely milky ways brought just for me all the way from England , and allthough my parents put only 50 euros in my birthday card , due to the crisis :) I assume   which now holds our country captive . I was so happy that I felt like a kid again , and all I can say is thank you ,the cherry on the cake was in the evening when Auntie Georgia from Asfentiles came bringning me the most lovely Basil plant I have ever had . All I can say to all of you is thank you from the bottom of my heart I will try to remember their  birthdays also  ,but you know I am Greek and we take things very slowly , so slowly that we tend to forget  things ,our logo, is isos avrio isos methavrio - may be tomorrow may be the day after .
